hiv transmisson via blood

hallo all,

My case is as follows:yesterday we got drunk in a bar and i wanted to buy
friend a cola.I went to the bar and the bartender(young girl around 26)cut her
hand with a glass and started bleeding.I ordered the cola and she passed it to me with her other hand(i noticed she was bleedind after i took the bottle).

It was kind of dim atmosphere with ambient lights so i couldn't notice if there was blood on the bottle but i think there wasn't,because she used her other hand.I took a look at my arms but as i said it was dark and didn't notice any blood.

My question is if the girl had hiv could i have got it somehow?(i checked my mouth this morning and there were no cuts or anything like that).
Also by some accident if there was drops of blood in my eye could that pose a threat?I quess if there was blood on my face someone would have told me but as i said we were drunk and now i am a l little paranoid.

Sorry if the question is stupid,i just want to calm myself down a little bit because i'm a little anxious and will have to wait at least month and a half to
make a hiv test.

thank you in advance,
Stephen

I dont see any concerns here, so you can relax

Re: hiv transmisson via blood

hi Apolo,

thank you for your answer.I just hope i haven't missed any details and there was no blood in my eye or around my beer bottle.
Is there a significant risk if blood enters the eye?
Hope i'm not taking too much of your time.
Thanx again and take care.

Stephen
