Dear lybrate-user. I am afraid that you are at a risk of acquiring HIV. However since your friend is on ART it's his viral load which may determine the chances. Secondly a day's gap may have reduced chances but can't be ruled out. Please get yourself tested after 6 weeks, 3 months and 6 months of exposure. Chances are less but dear this is biology. We can't be sure. Please be cautious in future and take care.
