Diseases From Sharing Water Bottle

Patient

Q: Will I get any diseases if I drank 2 sips out of a coworker's water bottle?

I accidentaly drank out of a coworkers water bottle (2 normal sips). My lips touched the bottle while drinking both times. I don't want to be mean, but he is gay and changes relationships often so I am not sure if he has any diseases. He said he has a doctor's appointment tomorrow to take his blood for something (not sure why?!). I don't know if I am just being overly stressed and paranoid about getting some disease.

Symptoms:  No symptoms. Just happened few hours ago.
