I have just one question i have been paying for sex for year now and been using condom with no exception but recently something crossed my mind that I don’t know if the condom is madd up of latex or not and now i have been worried lately . I always use condom for vaginal sex and no condom for oral sex to me or to the girl which i give. Do i need to do an Hiv test based on my all the encounters and from my end there was no condom break and is it easy to tell if it is broke please help me.

Women do not provide condoms to you to protect you.  They provide condoms to protect themselves from YOU.  There is no motivation for them to provide you with a lambskin condom that would offer themselves no protection from whatever you might have.

If you're concerned, get a test and start checking the condoms.

There is no medical reason for you to test for HIV.
