Can you get HIV with a condom?

If you cannot get HIV through a condom can you please what this article below is about??

http://www.williamgairdner.com/condoms-and-hiv/

I've come across this and I am worried sick. I wore a condom with a street walking prostitute but it was a condom designed for my pleasure which meant it was one of the THINNEST condoms available which makes me even more worried. I went to a GUM clinic in the UK and one of the nurses/doctor advised that even though I wore a condom I should still get tested for HIV. Can you please confirm what is true?

Now my head is confused as to whether I need testing or not, should I?

That is not an article, it's a blog from some guy...come on.
Condoms when used correctly stop the spread of STD's and HIV.
Go into the Dr's forum and read their responces to sex with a condom.

Thanks Vance.

In light of my circumstances with a sex worker and that I used a thin condom. Do you suggest testing for this? no?

No. Latex condoms work. Doesn't matter the thickness of them.

latex works all the time like Vance2335 said they stop HIV for sure and most STD's.
