You may want to have an STD panel done.

She should of told you she had HIV before you engaged in such activities but the good news is that you can't contract HIV from the activities you engaged in.

Disclosure only needs to take place on penetrative sex.

I'm just saying it wouldn't have hurt because he wouldn't be in panic mode right now.

It doesn't matter what your opinion is, the positive person is not obligated to say anything about their status unless having penetrative sex.

You never had an exposure.

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

It is not recommended that healthcare workers disclose their infective status to patients.
