Latex condom effectiveness

I will specify my question in more detail.I want to ask that if Latex condom is used everytime during vigianal sex and if it used scientifically correct and if that condom dose not slip ,broke then also that condom not give 100 % protection against hiv in that specific sexual act ??? Though latex is impermeable to hiv virus .
Sorry for repeated question ,i have search a lot on CDC website and other reputed Healthcare and jiv helping website no one is providing specific answer . If latex is 100 % impermeable to HIV and if that latex condom use correctly and if it dose not slip or brake during that vigianal sexual act then why that viginal sexual act is not 100 % jiv preventive ????

wound on body is big and deep

Some articles on Internet say that if the wound on body is big and deep, and the bleeding is very serious, you will have chance to contract HIV when your wound is contacted by people's blood who is HIV +. Do you agree it? Is there anyone who gets HIV infection by blood contact through his or her wound on body in the world?

John (Protected Sex)

I went to a massage parlor which had a Thai therapist. We have sex with condom on but I didn’t finish (although she finished multiples times).
Condom (which was half way on the dick as the condom was little lose. She removed the condom and gave me a blow job. She cut my penis head as she was wearing braces (this I later realized). Finally she gave me an oil hand job.
Now I am scared that I may have gotten hiv as when she removed the condom the bodily fluids from sex might have been there on my penis and then she gave me a blow job with a cut on my penis. Might have exposed my penis blood stream to the virus.
Is there any chances I could get hiv from this??.
I am really worried couldn’t sleep for days

hiv risk, vaginal fluid come to contact with location of herpes outbreak

Hi. last year I contracted herpes at the base of the shaft of the penis where it is not covered by condom(lower bladder area).
I abstain from sex when outbreaks happen and I always use condom.
how ever last month I had a protected sex with a female sex worker, I noticed that her vaginal fluid come to contact with the location where my herpes outbreaks always happen(no active lesion at that time).
I read online that having herpes increases risk of hiv transmission even if the active lesions are not present.
I wanted to know my risk from the above mentioned event.

thanks

needle sharing vs wound to wound

If open wound came in contact with an HIV-positive athlete who is bleeding, the odds of transmission would be less than 0.3 percent so it is the same as for needle sharing. So why many of needle sharing cases were confirmed as route of HIV transmission and never any case when wound came in contact with a HIV positive blood?

Hiv

I had high risk exposure. I had sex with a women who hiv status is unknown on July 4 2019 I used a condom but it broke as soon as I realized I stopped. On august 10 2019 I(5 weeks) I got 4th gen test result was negative . Today October 1st(89 days from possible exposure) I went and got a alere determine Hiv-1/2 ag/ab combo finger prick. Also negative. My question is should I re test or can I be sure that I'm completely clean?

HIV risk of condom slippage

I recently had sex with unknown HIV status. We used condom during the course but when he pulled his penis after ejaculation the condom slipped. I pulled the condom inside my anal since the base of the condom is somewhat near the opening of my anus. I inspected the condom and found his sperm/semen inside before I throw it. I'm not sure if there's breakage since I haven't notice leaking. Am I at serious risk?

PEP Failure

Good evening everyone. First, let me start by appreciating what you do here, using your time and resources to serve humanity. May God continue to give you all the strength to do more. Thanks.

During a vaginal sex (which lasted for about 4 minutes) with a CSW in Nigeria on June, 20 2019, I had finished and pulled out only to discover that the condom I used had ruptured. The following day (21 June 2019) I went to a clinic and was given one month course of PEP which I started within 23hrs. During the time I was taking the medication I experienced fatigue on 3 different occasions, cluster headache and intermittent nausea. I finished the medication on 20 July 2019 and since then have experienced the following symptoms: cluster headache that cause me pain in my eyeballs, pain that moves around all my joints, pain in my groin, lower back pain, light painful sensation in my armpit and under my jaw, recurrent nausea. 9 days after the course of PEP I developed a very high fever that will come, go, and come back again putting me in a state of feeling extremely hot and then extremely cold again, night sweats, pain in my calf and behind my knees that extends towards my thighs, peripheral neuropathy that causes tingling and numbness in all my limbs, nasal congestion in one of my nostrils that gets worse at night, light sour throat for few days, pain in my eyes and ears, chest pains, body ache and cramps.

This is my test update. 9 weeks post finishing PEP and 13 weeks post exposure, 3rd generation Alere antibody test-negative, but I am still having joint ache that moves around all my joints starting from my ankle joints to my knees, to my elbow joints and waist, and fingers. The pain would come and go and come back in a few days. Occasional body aches, pain in my eyeballs, nasal congestion in one of my nostrils that gets worse at night, few pimple-like rashes on my shoulders that would appear and go away in a few days and come back again, occasional chest pains. I think the PEP failed me and I am seroconverting. Please what do you think? I have read stories of people that seroconverted 6 months after taking PEP. Do you think I am one of such persons?

Routes of HIV transmission

I have heard that risks for HIV are only:
1) Having unprotected penetrative anal or vaginal sex
2) Sharing IV drug equipment with other IV drug users.

Does it mean that such situations as anal fingering with bleeding finger or accidentally getting someones drop of blood into the wound risk free?
