sorry for late reply sir..yes sir but i am unaware the condom was expired and also condom was not latex..but one thing for sure condom was intact.in whole exposure and did not break..but i am not know if very little hole in condom..

If you used a condom and it was intact you never really were exposed.  Condoms are made with 2 objectives - to protect from STIs and avoid unplanned pregnancy.

Symptoms don't occur 3 months post exposure and ARS symptoms are never mild.  When it happens you will know.  Its comes down heavy and you will need to go to ER.

However,  you dont have to worry about about any thing because you were never exposed. I suggest you must take your anxiety problems to the relevant forum.

thanks for your kind advise sir i really appreciate it and try to my anxiety under control.

You are not having HIV symptoms.  You had protected intercourse and had ZERO risk for HIV.  You do not need to test.

I have no idea what your symptoms are, likely anxiety, but they are NOT related to HIV.
thanks for your kind advise i really appreciate it and try to keep my anxiety under control and i will work with my gp and try to figure out why the symptoms are come and what are the ilness give this symptoms...

You have been given correct and definitive answers by both Psyntax_error and CurfewX regarding your HIV concerns. As they both pointed out, you never had a risk for HIV in the first place, so your continued obsession is  anxiety driven and you need to address that with your doctor. Untreated anxiety can rapidly become debilitating, so I would strongly urge you to speak with your doctor as soon as possible.
We all wish you the best
