Hello and welcome to e health forum.

Sex with uninfected and committed partners (or spouses) does not result in HIV infection.

Sex with non committed or casual / Unknown individuals who may have other sex partners might increase your risk of sexually transmitted infections including HIV.

In your case, since you have had sex, only with your wives, there is no need to worry about STDs or HIV.

I hope this clears your doubts.
