|Please please respond very scared
Feb 27, 2012
Hi,I am very scared I had sex with a sex worker and just coming towards the end the condom broke,I pulled out and just started panicking, I washed my penis with water,then I asked her if she was clean and if she'd ever been tested,she said she was fine however I was still very worried so I asked her if she would come with me for her to do an oraquick test,she did,and also I did for her benefit,we both were free from HIV however I am still very concerned that she may have contracted it in the last three months.please tell me do I need to be concerned, as I'm really struggling to come to terms with this,,please please reply and give me your advice. Ps.how long would the antibodys take to show up on an oraquick test Thanks very much in advance Regards tj

I would not be too concerned. True, the broken condom was a risk. However, the length of time that you were inside your partner was very brief and her test was negative. You are correct, she might have been in the three month window, but considering that most people will show up positive within 25 days, that window, while not conclusive - is much smaller.
I would go in for a test at the three month mark, just to be sure. I am certain it will come out negative.
