in risk. With condom one broke prior to intercourse, even with a higer risk would 10-11 weeks be conclusive in a healthy man? Mid august was the time frame. tested 11-9-2011

broken condom? in that case retest. as your exposure was in august, you can get an accurate result now. try to test with a classic blood draw instead of the orasure.

ps. your result is highly unlikely to change.

if the condom didn't break during intercourse you were protected and testing was not necesary.
