Thank you for answering my question. Could I get you to be a little more specific about the nature of the "decreased effectiveness". That is a pretty ambiguous term. Does decreased effectiveness mean "more likely to break" or are there risks beyond breakage?
I'm not asking this from the perspective of some future event. I know that there is a risk going into the situation but for an incedent that has already happened...the condom did not break, how likely is it that i was exposed to HIV?

Hi As long as the condom didn't break it is fine. It doesn't always happen but can and with water based lubricants will not.
