Response from Dr. Hightow-Weidman

Hello there- Engaging in sex in which a condom was clearly broken would constitute a possible exposure for HIV. I think that the symptoms you describe are in fact too early to be caused by acute HIV but would suggest testing at 4 weeks and again at 90 days to be sure. Take care, LHW
