2 and a half days ago i had sex with a high level escort from london escort services. for a second my condom was broken and i immediately noticed it like within 2 seconds and stopped the sex (still not sure if it was broken inside or outside). I also had a shave cut near base of my penis not on the penis but it was not bleeding at time of sex and it was a fresg cut though which i took half an hour before exposure and was hardly visible as it was very minor cut . I am circumcised male . are their any chances of catching hiv? i am really stressed and anxiety is also causing some problems. is there any test that i can go for after a week of exposure?
Thanks for the query.

I got a couple of questions to ask. First is about hiv. Me and my partner had an oral sex last two weeks and we did a home test hiv kit and the result came out negative for both of us. My partner is an escort. Since our results are negative, is there any possibilities i could be infected if my partner is in a hiv seroconversion stage which i did not know of?
My second question will be, i think i had scabies a couple of days back and it disappeared the night i treated it but when i got them i had experience diarrhea which passes water stools. Then today i feel a little nausea but i didnt vommit. Could this be food poisoning?
I know the HIV RNA test is 95-99% at 9-11 days post exposure. I am heading out of town and wanted to get one on the 8th day. Would this just decrease its accuracy slightly? I'm just looking for some comfort before I can take a DUO test at 3 weeks. Thank you.
