If it's any consolation, I once had a boyfriend who was HIV+. He was a recovering heroin addict, and I didn't find out he had HIV until after we broke up (oh, and yeah, I found out from a mutual friend - he didn't even try contacting any of his ex-girlfriends. Ugh!). This was back in the mid-80s, when it was much scarier than it is today (IMO) because they didn't have all those medications. Well, he and I always used condoms and I never got it. So... maybe that will ease your mind a little bit.
