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:Do you still have the burning on top of the penis?
User:i consulted a urologist and have taken medication for that
User:its fine now, he suggested me to take lot of water, sensation is not even due to the exposure
User:thats due to climatic changes and water intake..
User:thats his analysis..
Doctor:I agree with the Urologist
User:and, when I explained him the same situation, he told that chances are very less (>99%) to get infected for a single episode of exposure
User:that too for a fraction of seconds..
Doctor:He is right
