Response from Dr. Hightow-Weidman

Hello there- Symptoms of HIV infection would not be expected to appear immediately after the risk exposure as you describe. In addition, if you had protected sex and used the condom correctly from start to finish, your risk for acquiring HIV would be very low. If you haven't been tested recently for HIV and your exposure was three months ago as you stated, I would certainly test to be reassured. Take care, LHW
