Response from Mr. Cordova
Across the board you did everything right. The only risk you have would be for Syphilis since it is transmitted via skin-to-skin contact, you may have been exposed in an area that the condom does not cover. Still, using the condom helped lower the likelihood of transmission.
I do not think you need to test for this incident in particular, but you should be tested for all STD's, including HIV at least once a year, and preferably every six months.
