User:What is the chance of getting infected with HIV after having unprotected sex (ONLY FOR FEW SECONDS - LESS THAN 15) with a female with HIV positive and negative also?

While I was having sex, after ejaculation, I observed that condom at the tip of my penis got torn. According to her, it was torn after the ejaculation due to the force. I am not sure when it got torn. Intercourse lasted only a few seconds, about 7-15 sec's. Since then, my worry of getting infected with HIV is at the peak. Please let me know the initial symptoms, tests, duration of symptoms outcome. Its three weeks now since that incident took place. I observed a pus sore (similar to heat sore) formed near my penis. I doubt its a wart. I observed this one week earlier when I was trimming there. I don't know when it occurred. Its painless, non itchy. That's the only change in my body I have observed. Due to anxiety and worry, I some times feel slight increase in my body temperature. No other major illness is observed till now. Please guide me through. I had completely PROTECTED sex with some other females in the past. I am on top of her when this incident happened.
