hi
last week i had sex with a woman, and i used condom but at the end u found that it is ripped (cut), but it covered 80% of my penis, included the head, (just one side of condom had crack), i am so worry about infection to HIV,
I did not have anal sex and also my penis is circumcised, i did not see any blood or crack on the skin of penis,... that was the first time that i had sex with some one that i did not know her.
may you please tell my how much is probable to be infected,

hey, there is always a chance to get the infection in your case it looks like a you could be safe but its always better you try to get a HIV and HBsAG done after a week and try to get the same done with the girl if it's negative then repeat it after 6 months,just play safe next time.

Hello,
Since the condom was ripped, hence there is a possibility that HIV transmission can occur. I suggest you to get an examination done from a physician. HIV testing is done with a blood test and is done in full confidentiality. The blood is first tested by ELISA test which is a screening test which looks for antibodies in the blood. Then if it is positive then Western blot test is done to look for specific proteins of HIV.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
