You should not worry. Hepatitis is a treatable disease and if you have no problem since 2017 then you most probably don't have hepatitis. Now for HIV there is still very little chance because- 1) HIV INFECTION RATE FROM MULTIPLE NEEDLE PRICK ARE LESS THAN 5% 2)  If you had been HIV positive since 2017 then you must have had atleast few symptoms of HIV. So, if you feel otherwise healthy then there is not much to worry about.
