As long as the tip of your penis is covered it was not a risk . An intact condom means that you did not have a risk for HIV . Here's what you need to know in order to avoid hiv infection:

You need to be using condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, every time, no exceptions until such time as you are in a securely monogamous relationship where you have both tested for ALL sexually transmitted infections together.

To agree to have unprotected intercourse is to consent to the possibility of being infected with an STI.Sex without a condom lasts only a matter of minutes, but hiv is forever.

Have a look through the condom and lube links in my signature line so you can use condoms with confidence.

Although you did not have a risk and do not need to test for this specific incident , anyone who is sexually active should be having a full sexual health care check-up, including but not limited to hiv testing, at least once a year and more often if unprotected intercourse occurs.

If you aren't already having regular, routine check-ups, now is the time to start. As long as you make sure condoms are being used for intercourse, you can fully expect your routine hiv tests to return with negative results.

Don't forget to always get checked for all the other sexually transmitted infections as well, because they are MUCH easier to transmit than hiv. Some of the other STIs can be present with no obvious symptoms, so the only way to know for sure is to test.

Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, and you will avoid hiv infection. It really is that simple!

We were not there so the best we can advise is an intact condom means no risk, but if you have doubts then go test . If the tip of your penis was covered during vaginal or anal sex then you had protected sex and did not have a risk for hIV .

thank you,my tip of penis always covered with condom,i doubt because when i want to use the condom again the condom is very loose,so i think maybe vaginal fluid can enter from base of condom,and i have possibility have sex with condom inside out because my penis feel wet and csw having hard time install the condom to my penis,that is hiv risk?but when the very loose condom install to my penis even if i have sex with inside out condom my tip of penis definitely covered by condom all time,so even the condom is very loose,as long my tip of penis covered by condom,i don't have hiv risk?the important things from an intact condom means no risk is my tip of penis covered with condom right?

That is correct ... If the condom was intact there was not a risk for HIV .

means no risk, but if you have doubts then go test .
if hiv virus in vaginal fluid enter to the condom and exposed to my penis,maybe hiv virus in vaginal fluid can enter from base ring condom because the condom is very loose,even my tip of penis covered with condom,thats hiv risk?and if i have sex with condom first and have sex again and use that condom again inside out,that is no hiv risk to as long as my tip of penis covered with condom?even my entire penis exposed with vaginal fluid because i have sex with that condom previously?

I will be clear ... I am telling you that you did not have a risk for HIV from wearing a loose used condom if it remained intact .

HIV is fragile and once outside the body its instantly damaged and rendered unable to infect so reusing a condom is not a risk ... you are need to use fresh condoms each time but in this case if it did not break you were protected .

Lastly ... Although you did not have a risk and do not need to test for this specific incident , anyone who is sexually active should be having a full sexual health care check-up, including but not limited to hiv testing, at least once a year and more often if unprotected intercourse occurs.

If you aren't already having regular, routine check-ups, now is the time to start. As long as you make sure condoms are being used for intercourse, you can fully expect your routine hiv tests to return with negative results.

thank you,so an intact condom means as long as the condom did not break right?so the reason why use again the condom inside out is not a risk of hiv is because the hiv virus cant live outside body?

You keep asking the same crap over and over and my answer is not going to change . It does not matter that you bought a subscription, buying a subscription does not give you the right to expect us to go over the same thing with you over and over .

Anyone who continues to post excessively, questioning a conclusive negative result or no-risk situation, will be subject to a four week Time Out (a temporary ban from the Forums). If you continue to post excessively after one Time Out, you may be given a second Time Out which will last eight weeks. There is no third Time Out - it is a permanent ban. The purpose of a Time Out is to encourage you to seek the face-to-face help we cannot provide on this forum.

We will not go endless rounds with you and have completed your risk assessment . You can look up information as easily as asking us to do it for you .

Your questions does not make sense and if you have a question about something on med help go ask them .
