Rigs and AiDs?

What are the chances of me being exposed to AIDs or HIV from using heroin IV? I'm going to a Free Health Clinic soon? I hope... I want to get tested to be safe. Ive done Heroin a handful of times since December of 09. Ive never shared a needle, and have always taken the necessary pre cautions.

Your chances will be zero if you don't use IV heroin at all and practice other safety measures.     You are 17 yrs old. Please stop this now!  You will have a lot less to worry about!    
Get yourself tested and move ahead to a drug free life.
