HIV Transmission and Education >> Am I Infected?


hole in condom; need advice
      05/28/00 05:01 PM


I was recently (2 weeks ago) the insertive partner in anal sex with an hiv+ individual. Anal sex with this man lasted about 1 minute tops. As I pulled out the condom, I realized that there was a hole near the tip of my condom (about 1.0 cm diameter) Not sure that it was right at my urethra during intercourse but unlikely...the hole probably lined up with the head of my penis. No scratches or bruises were
on my penis.

I just tested for STD's and all returned negative.

I would like to know what kind of risk I am in as the insertive partner. I am flooded with so many opnions and facts about HIV that I am so confused what to believe.

And worse, I am so scared and alarmed that I am unable to
go a day without this incident lurking in my head.

Some kind soul out there please share some feedback on my
