Brief Answer: The risk for HIV is negligible Detailed Answer: Hi, Welcome to HCM. Thanks for posting your query. You had a protected exposure. Condom was intact. The risk of HIV/STD through touching and handling the dick is negligible. So nothing to worry. Anyhow by having a HIV test and ruling out HIV is quite safe for you and it will relieve your unnecessary mental tension. Dr S.Murugan

Brief Answer: Rule out HIV with Antigen test after 4 weeks Detailed Answer: Hi, Welcome back. Your chances of getting HIV is almost a remote possibility. I suggested you the HIV test to see a negative test and to get relieved from mental tension. You can have an antigen based test or a 4th generation test 4 weeks after your risky contact which would be a conclusive one. Dr S.Murugan

Brief Answer: Neckpain not related to HIV.Condom high protectio Detailed Answer: Hi, Welcome once again. 1.Earliest manifestation due to HIV can occur only after 4-6 weeks of high risk activity if it infected with HIV.That too all people infected would not likely to develop these symptoms. Only around 50% of the infected will have early symptoms. Others remain asymptomatic even after 5-10 years. So without a blood test nothing will indicate HIV beyond doubt. Neck pain 3 days after this contact had nothing to do with HIV. 2.You can have protected sex with your wife. Nothing wrong. 3.Condom offers a very high degree of protection against HIV. condom uncovered parts (Base of penis and scrotum) are sometimes at risk if the secretions are excess. This is a remote possibility. Dr S.Murugan

Brief Answer: Condom is quite safe. You need no test. Detailed Answer: Hi, Welcome back. We have followed many many sero-discordant couple (One partner is HIV positive while the other is negative) for more than 15 years. Those who were using condoms consistently and correctly had never acquired HIV so far while who were not using condom regularly they became concordant or their spouse also got infected. 1. I am yet to come across an individual who acquired HIV while using condom. 2. If you think that you never worry about HIV in future unnecessarily for anything or any illness, you don't need a test at all. You can be confident and you are HIV free. Dr S.Murugan
