What was your exposure?  Gonorrhea and chlamydia will show up on a test about 4-7 days after exposure.  Although getting infected with one of these bacteria may slightly increase the chances of getting infected with HIV, the slight increase is pretty insignificant.

How long did you engage in sex after the condom broke?  What country are you in?  Did you end up telling your wife?

Even if the escort had HIV (which chances are better that she did not), it's hard to catch HIV from a one-time exposure, especially if you didn't previously have any STDs.

ghonorrea will show up 4-7 days i say it shows up about the 2nd day or 3rd. Chlamydia takes about 2weeks to show up, regardless doxy cleared it if u had something wrong, ur pretty much home free, herpes symptoms arrive about the 4th day showing bumps and lesions. U got nothing to worry about, hiv well if she had hiv then she could of also had herpes, and if u didnt get herpes then its possible u didnt get hiv. i dunno go ahead and test for peace of mind.

also like i said i did take the hiv viral load test at day 15 it came back negative do you think that was to early for hiv to be detected by this kind of test

You told wife, man you're brave!  Haven't told my wife yet.  Doc HH assures me my activity very low risk for HIV, but still awaiting std test results.  Its the weekend, if I don't get results today I don't know what I'll do cuz I know wife will want to "cuddle".   Anyone know where the forum is for crazy fools who had extra-marital sex and are now paranoid! and don't know what to do and who believe every tingle and twitch is the symptom of hiv or std?  Never mind, I think this is it.

Shadow, how long it take to get the hiv viral load test results.  My doctor ordered HIV and STD tests, which I did Wednesday this week, but lab did work and sends results to doctor.  Hoping to hear something today before weekend but not optimistic that I'll get results back.  Just in case, I have appt with county Health dept for AIDS test on monday morning, which they say takes 20 mins. for results.  

I too would like to know if day 15 is too early to be conclusive for hiv viral load test.

Shadow,  I had to post and commend you for telling your wife.  
As a wife and a mom myself, I know that if my husband had done anything I would be more likely to work through it if he told me than if I found out on my own.  It takes a strong woman to be able endure this with you.  I wish you and your family the best.
