Hi Guys.

Just want to find out. 2 weeks ago, I had protected sex with a lady.
After sex I took of the condom off and Checked it with water and there was no leaks. the condom still seemed fine.

Is there any chance that i could have contracted HIV from this exposure?

Please assist

Since you asked a question here previously, you've already been told the risks for HIV.  I am hoping you remember that protected sex with an intact condom is NOT a risk. But then I have to ask why you are asking again for reassurance? This sounds like an anxiety issue to me and we should not need reassurance every time we have sex that we didn't have an HIV risk if we are  using condoms. Right? Think about that for a second before responding. If there is an anxiety issue, it is helpful to begin working on it so you can just be at peace.  To remind you in case you 'forgot' the risks for HIV, they include having unprotected vaginal or anal sex or sharing IV drug needles. You had no risk.

If the condom kept water after the sex it was still intact right ? I know I did check the condom after sex with water to make sure it's fine and it kept the water. So no reason for concern and also no reason to test ?
If a condom fails it is a large rip down the seam and it hangs in tatters so both of you know it. Messy water tests are a waste of time. You can safely move on from doing that anymore.
There is no need to fill a condom with water after intercourse.  As long as the condom did not burst WIDE OPEN, exposing the head of your penis, you were protected from HIV.  Clearly, the condom did not burst wide open, so it is time to forget about this event and move on.

There is no reason to test since you had zero exposure to HIV.
