I am worried when I use a condom and when condom in vaginal sex a little bit goes up and down on penis, and vaginal fluid is on end of the penis, end of the penis (cca 2 cm) is not always covered with condom then I am in panic and ask my self can I be infected in this way and should be tested on HIV? And I ask my self for vaginal fluid he has at all enough strength to affect a healthy man without sti?
I knew it is hard to get HIV in unprotected vaginal sex 0.01 % to 0.03 %, but still, I am worried, and I cannot relax and enjoy in protected sex. Please, can you help me and maybe encouraged me.

Welcome to icliniq.com.
The virus can not permeate through the intact condom. The amount of protection given by barrier contraceptive (condom) is not only for HIV but also for other sexually transmitted infections. Research has ample evidence to suggest that condom forms a valuable part of HIV prevention.Only certain body fluids like blood, semen, pre-seminal fluid, rectal fluids, vaginal fluid, and breast milk from a person who has HIV can transmit it (CDC).
When there is unprotected sexual intercourse, the virus enters through cuts and sores or directly through mucous membranes. Mucous membranes are found inside the rectum, vaginal, penis, and mouth. Your risk of contracting HIV when consistently and correctively using a condom, and it did not break while sex, is non-existent. So, relax and enjoy your protected sex. Another thing, there is no harm in knowing your HIV test, for this, you can get HIV rapid test at an accredited lab. I hope my answer could decrease your anxiety but do revert if you have any more question.
