User:Hello Doc,
Yesterday, I had sex with a lady aged about 36 years. I used condom for safety during the intercourse. After ejaculation, when I removed by penis out from her, I realized that the condom was broken at the tip. I am not sure when it was broken. Later, I rushed into the wash room and cleaned my penis with water for 2-3 times. I have undergone HIV test in the recent past about 2 months ago and tested NEGATIVE. Even I have taken the test yesterday also, but tested NEGATIVE. But,
1.) With this unfortunate incident, is there any chances of me getting infected with HIV or any other STDs?
2.) What are the precautions or medications to be taken assuming that she is either POSITIVE or NEGATIVE?
3.) Are there any symptoms that I might experience if I am probable of getting infected?
4.) I am currently experiencing a slight, very very very slight burning sensation at the top of my penis. What does this mean? I had this sensation earlier, when I masturbate or when I face over body heat but later it came down.

Please let me know with the answers at the earliest because I am very scared with this incident and I could not even sleep well with this incident.
Please revert me if you want know any other details from my end?
Please help doc.. :(
Doctor:Hi
User:hi
Doctor:Please give me a few minutes to read your post.
User:sure sir
Doctor:Thanks for your patience.
Doctor:Let me answer your query individually.
User:sure
Doctor:1. The chances of HIV and other STD infections at this point of time cannot be predicted.
User:Ok
Doctor:As there was a condom break incidence there are remote chances of you getting infection.
Doctor:The possibility of HIV is related to the HIV status of your partner and her viral load.
Doctor:2. For precautions, there are 2 options left to you.
Doctor:a) get the HIV and other STD check up done on your partner.
Doctor:If the partner gets negative results on the screening test, it absolutely nullifies the chances of serious infection.
User:ok sir, remote in the sense, is it very rare?
Doctor:b) If your partner is not accessible, you should try post exposure prophlaxis of HIV.
Doctor:I shall explain the post exposure prophylaxis after I address your question.
Doctor:The chances of HIV infection with a single unprotected sexual intercourse is small. We consider an individual as having a high risk of getting infected if he has
Doctor:- multiple sexual partners
Doctor:- has tried exchanging needles with infected individuals
User:if he had unprotected sex with multiple partners?
Doctor:- through blood transfusions and vertical transmission from mother to child.
User:ok
Doctor:XXXXX, since you seem to have many questions, it may be better if we could discuss this over a phone call.
