Dear all,
Iam very new to this forum.Kindly read my post in full and tell me the possibility of infection.
I was a 27 year old virgin till 30/8/2012.Recently my engagement was broken and as i was in full of pain my friend had taken me to a CSW.I had taken some beer as it was my first time.I clearly remember that she had put a condom and did some oral.After that she came on top and we had sex for about 20 min before which i ejaculated.Every thing seemed to be fine and suddenly she told the semen had come out of the condom from back side when she removed mine from her.I was lying down and she was on top at that time.
I was in heaven at that time and did not even bother to look at the condom after the incident.I completely believed her words.
In between the sex i have observed that the condom is intact and did not break.
And iam not very clear about the final status.
After some days i got mild fever and i started digging my encounter with the CSW.
What are the chances of HIV infection,
1.If the semen which has come from the back of the condom mixes with her fluids.

And i have not washed my penis for about an hour and she has cleaned my penis with a tissue paper.
2.If the condom break
When i was taking bath the same day i have observed some pain outside my penis head where  foreskin ends and observed some reddish ness.I convinced my self that as i had sex for the first time it may be common.
Is infection possible through that wound.
After 60 days of this encounter i got fever with some throat pain.I got lot of mouth ulcers also.I guess these can be symptoms of HIV as well as common flu also.
Now a days it is becoming very difficult for me to plan any thing for my future and unable to concentrate in my job also.
I do not know whether iam over reacting or over convincing my self.
Few days back i have decided for the test and i have given my blood sample yesterday in a lab.I may get result tomorrow and I may not sleep tonight.Kindly do not take my problem light and give my chances of infection.
Awaiting your valuable reply,

Dhoopraj, you are worrying needlessly. As long as the condom did not break you were well protected against HIV. And you would have known if it had broken because when that happens the whole thing ends up looking like a hoop with long fringe on the penis.

Condoms provide very effective protection. The only confirmed risks for transmitting HIV sexually are unprotected vaginal and anal intercourse. As long as you always properly use a condom (making sure the head of your penis is covered), then you will be protected.

I don't see any cause for concern nor any need for testing this time.

Get on with your life.
