Relax.... You are not any risk of HIV. Six and seven month time was more than enough to produce conclusive results using test kits of earlier generation. Therefore those two test results relieve you from HIV risk fully and conclusively

HIV doesn't transmit through casual contacts, hugging, hand shake, kissing etc. Further, sweat is not the body secretion listed in the infectious body fluids. Also, exchange of any infectious body fluids if takes place INSIDE the body then it can only cause the transmission of the virus.

Relax, calm down and move on with your life normally, you were never at any risk of HIV.

Thanks for the quick response..I was not scared until I saw one post on the net which says hiv is present in the sweat and transmission through cuts n sweat is less likely and  even the doc here said some or small amount of hiv is present in the sweat
