You can have complete confidence that our discussion will be kept absolutely confidential among you, me and the entire cyberspace universe, OK?
I'm not exactly sure what you mean by the condoms being "rolled over on the bottom of my penis" If the business end of your throbbing tallywhacker (the head) stayed covered by the latex condom, you can consider your Uzbekistani sexperience to be "protected." If the condom broke and your Mr. Happy was exposed to potentially infectious Uzbekistani hooker vaginal fluids, you would have some degree of risk for STDs, including HIV.
My advice is that you level with your wife. This is not only the best way to confront your guilt; it's also the right thing to do. You should use latex condoms with your wife until your HIV-negative status can be reconfirmed. You should get routine STD screening as well as an HIV-antibody test at the three-month mark. The statistical odds remain very much in your favor that you did not contract HIV from this "biggest mistake of your life."
With only the details provided, I cannot make a determination as to whether nPEP would be warranted. (Most likely not.) If you are concerned and are still within the 72-hour treatment window, you could check with a local emergency room or HIV specialist. The physician will ask additional questions to ascertain if your condom failed and the likelihood of a significant exposure. He will advise if nPEP should be considered.
