HIV and AIDS
Transmission of HIV After Condom Rupture
I received anal sex and we had a condom rupture when he was trying to insert his penis. Is there any chance of getting HIV? Thanks.
Your chances of acquiring infection are low, but not negligible. Your chances are higher if you have a sore or ulcer. To know for sure, I would recommend that you get tested for HIV.
