Thanks for writing to us.
Since you re used the condom after washing and cleaning it thoroughly, there is no need to woory about getting HIV infection now. As long as the condom was not punctured, the risk is too low. Still to rest your mind, you can go for a specific test like ELISA six weeks after you were exposed.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.

First of all I would not advice you to re-use a condom. But since you washed and cleaned the condom and if it didn't break, you should be fine.
Further if your penis didn't have direct contact with her vagina, or you or your partner didn't have abraded skin at the point of contact be it while kissing or oral sex and none of you are HIV positive or carriers there is no need to worry about contracting it.
But for your satisfaction you can still take the ELISA rapid test which is available over the counter.

Thanks and I hope this helps.
