You should thank your lucky stars that you are not testing positive for HIV. Since you broke up with him and since you are not sick, you really don't have any damages to claim against him. I would leave it alone and not have any further contact with him.

Please rate 4 or 5 stars and close out the question. Good luck to you. I wish you all the best.
