About 30 minutes ago I just experienced a condom breakage being the receptive partner during anal sex. Just as he was going inside of me I heard a pop he pulled out immediately, and I told him I was done. He is a married, im assuming "bi-sexual" man. Luckily he was only inside of me no more than 5-10, 15 seconds at the most. Of Course he assures me he is clean and tells me he doesnt have unprotected sex too risky. We mad the mistake of using a vaseline instead of a lubricant, im sure thats what caused the breakage. I heard the pop of the condom and made him withrdaw, should i go out and get PEP? I know I am negative as I was tested in December and This was the second person I have ever had anal intercousre with the other person I used a condom wiht no breakage. Im just nervous scared and dont know what to do? Please help.

I've merged your threads here. Use only this thread if you have anything else to add.

You had a risk but a very low level one. From what you have described I wouldn't expect any problem. I don't see PEP as being warranted in this case.

I'll also mention that using the term "clean" in relation to HIV status is totally unacceptable. One is not either clean or dirty. This is about a virus and a person is either HIV negative or HIV positive. I'm sure you don't mean to be offensive, but for those living with the virus, using terms like clean and dirty are very offensive.

Bottom line regarding your risk, I see it as extremely low and does not warrant your doing PEP. But of course you have to decide about that.

I am so sorry, i was just stating exactly what he said. Never meant any offense to anyone I again apologize, so would u just recommend me testing at three months, as I said this guy assures me he is HIV- and Disease free, and before meeting he did ask me if I had condoms in case things led in a different direction. So those are indicators he is safe sex oriented. And as I previously stated he was only in me for a few seconds before I heard the pop and he immediately withdrew. just want to make sure im doing everything i am supposed to be.

Thanks ANdy

OK re no offense.

Common sense dictates that you should get tested in 3 months to confirm your negative status. You can do an initial test at 6 weeks. A negative at that point will be a likely and good sign that you will continue to test negative.

Thanks for your advice, one more question may I ask why do u call it a low level risk? I also thought the same thing because there was no ejaculation  or even pre-ejaculate(i guess it could have been a small amount) the condom was still completely dry I think it just was what we use for lubrication that caused the breakage. Or was it because he was inside of me for only a few seconds? Just seems the things I am always extremely concerned about are low risk from looking back on my history on this site.

It was an extremely brief, one-time-only event without ejaculation. That's why I say a low level risk.

And yes, in the past you have been "extremely concerned." Unduly so in terms of the realities of HIV tranmission. Let's not go through another extended round about this latest event. I expect you to come out of this ok.
