Condom Breaks, 45seconds-One Minute of exposure

Nov 23, 2012

About a month and a week ago, I had sex with a prostitute. This prostitute was not off the streets, but inside a strip club in Miami. We were having vaginal sex and the condom broke, time of exposure was about 45secibds to a minute and a half at most. Asked the girl if she was clean and the response was "Yes, I get tested every month. You don't think I want to be healthy" with that being said still had not givin me no piece of mind. I took a Std and Hiv test a week after contact and everything came back negative. As time has passed I have been getting very anxious and spending endless hours online trying to diagnose myself, not good I know. Going to get checked at month and a half mark and if everything come back negative again at the three month mark and sixth month mark as well. I have spoken to two different doctors and they told me that my chances are as close to 0 as it gets. Please let me know what you think? Thanks in advanced.

Response from Dr. Wohl

Very low risk for HIV infection indeed. Female to male transmission in the US is pretty rare. If your 3 month test for HIV is negative, so are you.
