Hello, I had protected sex with a sex worker 60 days ago. Did not notice a tear in the condom. There might’ve been one, not sure.
I got tested at the hospital 15 days after, I believe it was 4th gen. came back negative.
waited till 41 days and my doctor told me to get another test and i went to a different hospital, 4th gen and the results came back negative again. I’ve read on here that the only way to get HIV from penetration is without a condom, but then I unfortunately am one of those people who looks stuff up on google, and it says it’s only 90% effective…?
so 1- is that true, that condoms aren’t fully effective?
2- are my test results conclusive or should i go get tested again, some places it says that it in some cases HiV doesn’t show up for months, sometimes 6 months… which is worrisome
any feedback back would be great thank you.
