Everyone here has made some really good points, but I want to make one more that I'm not sure got made:

If someone who knew he had HIV infected you, surprise! He's a criminal and you can take him down. Abusive assholes get away all the time; HIV has, if I remember correctly, a special test available where you can compare two samples and see how likely it is that one person gave the virus to the other. Should hold up pretty well in court. And if you do have it, and if he is proven to have given it to you without disclosing his status first, you may from there be able to seek damages in a civil court as well. Not a lawyer, but I'd get one if you turn up positive.

It's no recompense, but by God it'll stop the same thing happening to anyone else.

Sending love (and hopes for a negative test)
