Risk of HIV in breast milk with unmarried girl

HI...

I have few doubts regarding hiv.

i had a sex with a girl who is unmarried. she was getting a few drops of milk from her breast, i dont know whether  i had a few drops of milk in my mouth and also i dont know her hiv status ?

1.How come a unmarried girl can get milk from her breast ?
2.Any chance of risk in this milk
3.I have a stomach ulcer, any possibilities of HIV spreading buy drinking milk
4.Whether i need to test for hiv ?

Please let me know ur valuable suggestions.

HIV is not transmitted by breast milk in adults.

"It is easy to be confused about the risk of HIV associated with breast milk.  Many educational websites and other resources list exposure as a risk, because infants can be infected by nursing.  But those sources rarely tell the full story.  Among babies nursed by HIV infected mothers, only about 10-15% catch HIV; and typically it takes 6 months before they become infected -- all the time swallowing several ounces of milk ever day.

Given that low infectiousness, what can the risk possibly be through exposure to a drop or two?  The fact is that breast milk has never once been implicated as the source of sexually acquired HIV, or of a new HIV infection in any human being except nursing babies."  DR HANDSFIELD / MEDHELP

No you do not need testing.

HIV is transmitted by;
Unprotected penetrative anal and/or vaginal sex
Sharing works with other IV drug users
