You never had an exposure and you didn't testing.

HIV is unable to reproduce outside its living host (unlike many bacteria or fungi, which may do so under suitable conditions), except under laboratory conditions; therefore, it does not spread or maintain infectiousness outside its host.

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

Thx Teak for your response! vaginal secretions are considered infectious and if it goes from her to me in relatively short time I don't understand
! And my symptoms are all lining up!

I think those are am the main ways but certainly have to be others?

There isn't, so get over it. HIV is not a concern.

Would glands close to site of entry be the first to swell upon potential infection? Assuming ocular exposure your nodes would swell in upper body first ?
