On the 27th of June my active and HIV + bf fucked me. He almost always cums inside me with a condom on, but on this day the condom broke. We didn't realise and he came inside me. I didn't freak out (probably shock) and had the cum in me...

Condom broke at the begining of Gay Sex

This seemed like a very brief exposure early in sex. I agree the risk is extremely low. A negative HIV antibody test at 6 weeks after the incident would convince me you are negative. A viral load that is undetectable at any time now that you are... Read more »
