Doctor can check: No worries unless a person has really bad luck. President Franklin D. Roosevelt said in 1933, "... let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself..." Medicine, like everyday life, is full of uncertainties because even the rarest events "can" happen. The real question is, how "likely" is something to happen? People who don't have HIV cannot transmit their HIV.
