OK, take it easy. Theoretically you did have a risk with the condom breaking. But it was a very low level risk. Until it broke the condom protected you. The exposure was of very short duration and was a one time only happening. HIV is significantly harder to transmit from female to male than the other way around.

Taking all of that into consideration I expect that ultimately you will test negative. You can test initially at 6 weeks. If you get the negative result that I expect you will almost certainly test conclusively negative at 3 months.

You do have another option. You could go to your doctor or an emergency room and get on to the PEP regimen. That lasts for 28 days and must be started within 48-72 hours after a risky incident. The sooner the better. Then you would count the testing period from when you complete the PEP regimen. Personally I don't think PEP is necessary in this instance but that's up to you to decide.

Given what you have reported I expect you to come out of this ok.

We cant give give odds on HIV transmission however its in your favor that the risk for the insertive partner during a condom break is lower on the scale of risk factors . You can expect to test HIV negative as its rare for transmissions to occur for the insertive partner from condom breaks .

Andy mentioned pep only as an option and not because you need it . Pep is not recommended for the insertive partner in cases of condom failure with a person of unknown status . Just follow through and get tested at 6 weeks and again at 3 months to confirm the result and know its unlikely that you got HIV from this encounter .

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.

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!
