[More]rum, although worried, will NOT have put themselves at risk of HIV infection
Have been a volunteer for an HIV charity and consider myself (now @ least) to be pretty knowledgeable on HIV transmission. If I can answer a question that you have then I will to the best of my knowledge.
I have the utmost respect for whom I consider to be the real experts and regular contributors to the forum; Teak, Lizzie Lou and Nursegirl. Indeed all regular contributors to the HIV prevention forum give their time willingly to help other people. I admire and respect people give their time to help others.
Very happily married and hoping (trying!) to start a family.
I do like a drink - which is in fact probably going to kill me before anything else! As I seem to get into most of my troubles when I've had a few!!!
lol... thanks for that. Yes i know deep down in my head it was not used and i'm being sooo stupid etc and you were right when you said testing should only be done in clinics. I think i was just more freaked out that i ordered the test hence there might be some weird people who might open - close and want to infect me? STUPID i know. What can i say my mind is constantly worrying me.
Yes, i re read the post and spoke to 2 charitys as well and they said the same as what you said if it was used it would not live outside exactly what you said.
The local gum clinic here advised me as i was sooo worried just to have a test to calm me down!
Thank you for everything! however i just cannot seem to get rid of this guilt feeling. I know u said there is no risk at all but i have re read the thread here and it does say that if you are poked there could be a theoretical risk and there would have to be fresh blood! when people mean fresh does that mean straight away? sorry for the extra message

I know that its all about my observation but i couldn't remember. what are the signs of a broken condom?or what happened after breaking a condom?sorry for asking such foolish question.
