Chances of getting HIV

Please consider my question. It is more than a week now since the day it got me think over and over  again. My question is, what if somebody foul played and put a blood or a semen on the brim of my bottled water or mixed in the water and I drank it, what if it has HIV on it, would it be enough to infect? Please help me.

The only risks for HIV in adults are:
1) Having unprotected anal or vaginal sex, or
2) sharing intravenous needles with IV drug users.

You CANNOT get HIV by ingesting anything.  Any fluids that you consume by eating or drinking would not present a risk for HIV since HIV is not transmitted by ingestion.

Thank you so much! One last thing before I put my mind at ease, even if I have a broken teeth and swelling gums but not bleeding, i'm still not at risk?
There is no information, and no "what if" that you could add to this event that would make it a risk for HIV.
