HIV exposure with expired condom?


#1

I’ve been living in a perpetual state of fear for the past year. I got tired of it so I decided to get tested for everything including HIV. Yesterday I got a text that the my samples had reached the lab.

I’m a heterosexual woman and whilst in an HIV high risk country, I was tricked into used an expired condom (it had expired the month before). I’m very paranoid about HIV already so we checked the condom after, it didn’t have any rips or tears after. I used one again (not expired but close to it) and again we checked it, no tears or rips. I didn’t know until after that the first one was expired.

How likely am I to test positive? It’s been a year and I’ve had no symptoms. But I’m still paranoid. If I get a reactive result will I get it via text or phone call?
