Glad you are practicing safe sex. With condom breaks in HIV infected partners, there would always be a small risk of viral transmission between partners, depending on the type of sex (rectal or vaginal), whether blood, trauma, or menstruation was involved, what the viral load of each partner was, among other factors.
