Welcome to icliniq.com.
You are right. You have every reason to think and fear about the procedure. But the fact is, HIV cannot survive in the outside environment and cannot transmitted in this way. But what you have to fear for is HBV (hepatitis B virus) because HBV can live and infect for one month in the outside world. HIV can only survive for two minutes maximum, and after eight seconds, it loses their infective capacity. So, regarding HIV infection, you are safe.
