HIV Concern from Broken Condom

Twenty-six year old female of Asian descent. Had sex with 30 year old of Asian descent. At the risk of sounding judgmental, he seemed very sexually experienced. The sex was vigorous since we didn't use lube. Condom broke in between and according to him, may even have been expired (and the idiot somehow has two Ivy League degrees). (I took Aftera less than an hour after we were done.)

I had a headache last week but nothing a little Advil didn't cure. I have experienced no other symptoms but can't help but worry about other STD concerns from this exposure. I am particularly worried about HIV. Granted, it's a few days before my period is due, so I'm probably more anxious than normal.

1. Assuming some of his ejaculate did get inside of me, what are the chances of infection of HIV from one encounter?

Though the risk is not very significant however it is not zero either. Odds in your favor are, like his health status is not known therefore strong chances are, he may not be an HIV+. What we can suggest here, stay calm, wait 4 weeks after exposure, get 4th generation HIV Duo test done and repeat it after another 2 weeks to be 100% sure about your status conclusively.
