Hi there, and thanks a lot for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline for your HIV/AIDS related health information. It seems you're concerned about the possibility of HIV transmitting during an encounter. We're happy to answer your question for you.

If the condom breaks during sex, essentially the risks are the same as if no condom were worn at all (no matter how long it took you to notice it was broken). Sex without a condom (or if the condom breaks) is considered high risk, which means that of the transmissions that have occurred, most have occurred during activities such as these. This does not mean that a transmission occurred in your case. To see the risks associated with various activities, we encourage you to check out our [risk assessment page](http://helpline.aidsvancouver.org/question/risk-assessment-chart).

We recommend you seek out a clinic that deals with sexual health matters. While it is now well passed the time that PEP would be effective, PEP is normally recommended in high risk situations. It would be up to the healthcare provider you saw to decide on whether to start you on PEP or not. PEP is essentially antiretroviral medication given to prevent an HIV infection from establishing itself. It will unfortunately be a while before you are able to have an HIV test that will conclusively give your status after this encounter, as most HIV tests are usually considered accurate at least 3 months after a potential exposure.

Thanks a lot for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline with your question, we hope it has been answered fully.
