Risk of infection

less than 72 hours ago i visited a transgender sex worker.
There was mutual protected oral and protected anal, me being the insertive partner
There was no change of condom between the two acts

I was still a bit tipsy and did not notice if the condom had failed or not when we were done
I do remember pulling the condom off from the base and up in reverse and cleaned off. But did not check to see if it failed.

Would I have known if the condom failed?

This is the first encounter I have had and have a wife at home
Should I get tested or take pep or is my guilt and remorse just fuelimg this

Thank you in advance

You would know if your condom would have broken.  When a condom fails in a manner sufficient to allow for HIV transmission, it is clearly ripped or torn in a way that could not be missed.

Move on with your life and forget about this no-risk event.

I agree with CurfewX.  You had no risk as the condom was in tact.  Only the head of your penis needs to be covered for protection.  And yours was.  The only way adults get HIV is unprotected vaginal or anal intercourse or sharing IV drug needles. So, no risk for you!

Thank y'all for taking the time to answer my question

I was not fully erect during the encounter

Would failure still be quite noticeable?
It hangs in tatters except the ring stays on. Not easy to take it off in that state, and impossible to not notice.
