Condom fail


How long after a condom fail (split) with someone very promiscuous should you get tested, in regards to incubation times?


Hello @JR330

The window period for chlamydia and gonorrhoea is 2 weeks, for HIV is 7 weeks and for syphilis 3 months.

If the person is very high risk for HIV then you could consider Post Exposure Prophylaxis - if you are within 72 hours. You would need to access this from your local sexual health service. If you are within 120 hours of the condom and you were at risk of pregnancy then you should consider emergency contraception.

From a males prospective having vaginal intercouse with a promiscuous women.
So are you saying you should get tested within 2 weeks or after 2 weeks?
