Regarding HIV

Today I went for a hiv blood test. The person who has drawn my blood, he has opened a new syringe. But there was no cap on the needle. When he has taken blood even, I have seen there was no blood on that needle when he has put it in my skin. And my hiv report came negative even. But I have little doubt as that needle didn't have any cap. My question is, is there any chance that I will get infected with hiv? Because I read infected needle can cause hiv even. Kindly help me in this regard, and reduce my stress

It is a bit paranoid for you to think that a clinic gives people hiv. the nurse knows how to do her job and you don't so move on from hiv instead of wasting your life in fear of your paranoid science fiction theory that you had a risk.
You have to be injected with someone else's blood to have a risk and yours was drawn which is the opposite.
