Small unseen condom tears don't happen to latex condoms.

So how does a condom tear during sex.. does it tear like a slit or burst like a balloon or just breaks from any portion into two.

Pls advice with your experience friends. My tension is huge for Hiv because of this...

The best analogy is like a balloon. Though it doesn't "burst" it does rip apart. Kind of like an old cloth in the very strong wind. Believe me it leaves no doubt as to whether or not it failed.

Why not try reading how HIV is transmitted and how to prevent it rather than fantasizing on fear and information that is probably based on fear. That would go much further in calming you if you had the facts to combat the wrong ideas you have. Sounds to me you have bought into the whole urban myths surrounding condoms and HIV for far to long.

so if it so obvious that you cant miss on a condom tear then why do people water test the used condom for tears.

i am worried that i didn't do a water test of the condom, but the condom looked normal while removing.

now i have this terrible fear of HIV by reading these condom tear posts.

further what are the odds of getting HIV from an infected female through normal vaginal sex just once.

waiting help friends

Pretty sad when a non-issue has you so paranoid that you have to ask the same questions again as another user. Even sadder is the complete lack of imagination you showed in picking another moniker. I liked the fact you tripped yourself up and signed in under the old one on this thread.

You had all the answers you needed on this subject before. Did you think the answers would change?

Go deal with your guilt.

They do it, because they fall for the same urban myths you believe in. That people put pin size holes in condoms to purposely infect/get pregnant/ do some "evil". That's a story that has been around for as long as the condom especially when they were made of other materials. Which is exactly why I asked you to read facts, boring I know, but it's better than believing a lie in my opinion and make you far less likely to be mocked by those who do have the facts.

Now help yourself and go read.

Dear Crabman,

I didnt want you guys to believe me as a new user thats why i used a very near name. i would not have done that but the original thread was not allowing me to enter any more comments / requests thats why i had to make a new user id but in no case it was to disassociate myself from my original id.

thanks for your reassurance friend. more than the guilt i think its the disease anxiety disorder thats frustrating me into thinking weird things like this. also that now if i have pain behind my neck near the spine could be because of the cervical pain i am associating it also with HIV symptoms and then start worrying myself regarding the same. i keep searching for sore lymph nodes near my neck armpit and groin and if something pains anywhere near i think its probably the symptom of HIV. then as i smoke at times and then probably get sore throat because of that i start thinking and believing that its happening because of HIV initial symptoms.

what should i do its been 1 month now to the exposure and i have been living on the edge since then.... trying to tell myself that no symptoms are because of HIV as i was protected but my mind starts thinking again on those lines that it could be because of HIV related symptoms

pls help friends....

Not much we can do to help, because there's nothing to be helped. You used a condom and it was intact. It doesn't get much better than that. Your worries are completely unnecessary, which you've been told a few times already, so I don't know exactly how else we could help you. ONce again, you're fine, you did not contract HIV from your protected sex encounter. Not much to be said beyond that.

Dear phoenix

I used a condom thats for sure i took off both condoms after 2 inserstions is also correct. But i am not very sure if they got ripped or slit while inside. Visible on single check their was no issue in the used condom. Still i am worried. What do you think is this fear about or could their be a chance of hiv exposure or my body is reacting to anxiety by these wierd symptoms... help again

Pls advice the chances of a healthy male with no std catching hiv from one unprotected vaginal sex exposure from a paid female sex worker of unknown status.

How many males do you find getting infected with one exposure.
