hiv is transmitted through...
unprotected vaginal / anal intercourse
sharing iv drug works
mother to child

hiv is NOT transmitted through environmental surfaces or inanimate objects.  once exposed to air, it becomes inactive and unable to infect

you had NO risk

If your concerned about something see a Dr but it has nothing to do with HIV.
