Response from Mr. Glenn
Thanks for your question,
There doesn't sound like you had any risk. Unless a condom breaks there isn't any risk for HIV, regardless if the person is HIV positive or not.
It's good that you used a condom, that's one of the best ways to keep you and your partners safe.
Hope this helps!
