Super thin latex condoms are perfectly safe when used properly. I'm concerned the "moisturizing body lotion" you used may have been oil based (many are). Oil-based products are not compatible with latex, as the oils can denature the latex. It's somewhat comforting that your condom did not fail completely (tear); however, if you noted some leaking, it's possible you were not completely protected. Consequently an HIV-antibody test at the three-month mark is warranted.
I'd suggest you review the information in the archives of this forum related to proper condom usage. Condoms rarely fail if used properly.
Thank you for your support of The Robert James Frascino AIDS Foundation (www.concertedeffort.org). It's warmly appreciated. In return I'm sending you my good-luck karma that your definitive three-month HIV-antibody test is negative.
Good luck. Be well.
