I Slept With Someone Who Has HIV And The Condom Broke. Does This Mean I  Have The HIV Virus?

There is no way to tell for sure whether you have been infected by the HIV virus, but there is certainly a chance that you have contracted the disease.

The best thing to do is to get checked as soon as you can - the earlier you are diagnosed with the virus, the more chance you have of treating the condition.

Can I catch HIV from someone if we had sex and the condom broke?
HIV can be passed from one person to another through the following bodily fluids:

  • Semen
  • Vaginal secretions
  • Blood
  • Breast milk

A condom prevents HIV infection by stopping semen (and pre-ejaculate) from coming into contact with vaginal tissue.

If the condom you were using broke and the guy you were having sex with ejaculated inside you, there's a considerable chance that you may have been exposed to the virus.

Even if he didn't ejaculate into you, a man's penis can release something called pre-ejaculate which can contain the HIV virus.

If a guy has cuts or sores on his penis (even very small ones) then there is also the chance that infected blood may have entered your system.

As I said before, the best thing to do is to get yourself tested.

Although it might seem like a scary thing to put yourself through, it's much better to get tested and find out for sure!

I also slept with a guy with HIV. He told me after sex, so 2 weeks later I got tested and the results were negative.

Get yourself tested, it's the only way to find out!

Good luck and God bless!

No, not for sure, but you have a high chance so you need to be tested now and in another few months time again.

Best wishes.
