Hi, welcome to HCm, I am Dr. Das
First of all, when you found the broken condom, it was necessary to take a pot exposure prophylaxis.
Whatever, for confirmation, you have to do p24 protein asssy which will indicate any transmission. Another which is also required is DNA PCR.
And one more thing is that you have to do anti HIV routine test after 3 and 6 month.
