Answer: 

Hello,

The situation you have described is what we would call a negligible risk for the transmission of HIV. This means there is theoretically the potential for the exchange of bodily fluids, however, there has never been a reported case of HIV being transmitted this way.

This means that you do not have HIV and you do not require testing for HIV.

HIV does begin to break down as soon as it comes into contact with the air.
