Dear patient,

Thanks for your health concerns. Although condoms dramatically decrease transmission for HIV, they are not perfect, and their best efficacy is around 95%, so yes, there is always a small chance. An early HIV test might be negative because antibodies take a while to develop, so if you have a blood test now that is negative you should repeat it in 6 months to make sure it’s a true negative

Hope this helps, wish you the best health.
