Thank you very much for your post and welcome to our forum.
Generally one can consider condoms safe and provided they remain in place and intact, there is no risk of contracting an STD. However herpes and HPV are the ones that een with the use of condoms, there is a risk of transmission, especially around the areas not covered by the condom as they are very contagious and would only require skin to skin contact.
I don't want to abuse your generosity, and am very calm now but I would require some reassurance so please bare me with one last answer:
Protected sex with condoms intact is 100percent safe for HIV right?
No medical reason for testing
I got sick 4 days after exposure, flu which I will not relate to ars as this is too early for such symptom right?
I am in country where HIV is a taboo and no testing is warranted unless the health ministry knows about it, so no need to bother with testing and losing sleep over this right? I am going on a vacation in 4 weeks and I wil test there I hope the duo test is available for peace of mind.
