HIV Risk

Hello - I had protected receptive anal sex for about 5 seconds. after insertion, the experience was rather painful and I decided to no longer continue to try. There was one penetration in, and then immediately removed. Condom in tact. Am I looking at any sort of risk here? currently at hour 50, so I could still get PEP if needed.

So, if you've read any posts here... we talk about what the risks are.  HIV is transmitted only by having unprotected vaginal or anal sex or sharing IV drug needles.  You had protected sex with condom. This is NO risk. You don't need PEP. You don't even need to test. You can't get HIV from a non risk.

Thanks. That's where I felt the answer would be, but some of those CDC risk assessors do provide for there being a risk event even where a condom is used. I do think one insertion only probably lessens the likelihood as well, as I don't know how fluids could exchange. But nonetheless, was just posing the question, as of course I am worried.
Does the CDC risk assessor only consider for condom breakage? I.e. so long as condom is in tact, no risk?
The ring at the bottom prevents an interchange. There is no "lessens the likelihood" factor since there is zero risk. The condom did not break, so you had zero risk and should move on.
Actually only the head of the penis needs to be covered.  So, there is not a risk with an intact condom.
