Thanks for your response. What would you say would be the percentage of infection if stuck by a small needle? Also, i thought hiv couldnt live outside of the body so why would a needle stick be a possible infection?

blood is very contagous - when junkies use bleach to kill off any viruses it does a good job killing the HIV but not HEP - HEP C is a very strong Virus
