Risk Assessment

Good Morning,

I am starting to freak out about an exposure I just had. I was on the recieving and giving end of anal sex with a guy I have had oral with before. He is very promisquious, but told me today he was tested the other day and is negative. He was in me for a few minutes with a condom on, with no ejaculation. I was in him for a few minutes with a condom also with no ejaculation.

I am fearful that the condom may have ripped while he was in me. I saw him take it off, but couldnt see up close. I am really freaked out right now.

What is my risk here?

Don't freak yourself out, as long as you seen him taking the condom off it was protected sex otherwise you wouldn't have seen much of anything of a condom left to be taken off...

I trust he had the test done, but what are the chances he was in the window period when he had the test done??

If he was concerned enough to get tested and he was safe when it came to having sex, it sounds like you really shouldn't worry

This is biggest reason i hate being gay. I feel that I am inevitably going to end up with this disease.
