How safe are condoms

I had protected oral and vaginal sex with a csw but she provided the condom and I couldn't see what condom it was and I'm fearing it might have been that deerskin condom. Do I have a risk of catching HIV? And is it normal to really stress over this or do I have a problem? I feel like I had every ars symptom in the book. & I've tested at 8 and 11 weeks both negative. Am I okay or do I need to see a doc for anxiety?

Condoms are 100percent safe when it comes to hiv. There has been numerous studies regarding the use of condoms. With serodiscordant couples where 1 is negative and the other is HIV positive with consistent condom use. The hiv negative partner never acquires hiv. Even with unprotected oral sex. And you had protected oral and vaginal sex. And remember even if she is csw she is also as afraid of getting std's from you as you are to her. That is why she has her own condoms.

So basically I had no risk right? And is a HIV test at 11 weeks close to conclusive? I hear that it's 12 weeks but I don't really know. I had the 4 gen hiv1/2 test not sure if that's a duo or not

If it is 4th gen it is conclusive 28 days beyond. And yes you never had a risk.
