Hi The good news is that you wore a condom throughout your experience and the condom didn't break. This gives you the best protection! I'm positive and my husband is negative and we have a great sex life. Getting tested is something that everyone should do to know their status. I would recommend testing, not from your experience as it was a very low risk encounter but so you can know your status as well.
The testing guidelines are to be initially tested 3 weeks post exposure and then again at 90 days, as long as there are no other exposures during this time the results are conclusive.
To sum it up, your risk was very low because of the condom use.
Be well and stay safe, Shannon
