Hi Very Worried, firstly I understand that this is a very stressful time for you and you have done the right thing by testing. Secondly if the man knew he was HIV positive then it is likely that he would have been on treatment, this would mean he can't pass the virus on. I would recommend using barrier contraception and re-testing at 3 months to confirm the negative test result then you will be able to move on from the incident with peace of mind.
