HIV from protected sex?

Hi,I recently had sex with a few girls that I don’t know their status of.I used condoms throughout the whole experience.They gave me oral and vaginal sex and a condom was used everytime.I didn’t see any holes or tears in the condom afterwards.I used the biosure test at 4 weeks and again at 6weeks,both were negative.I tested again at 3months with a 4th gen elisa test that was also negative.
Should I get tested again?
Can you get HIV if you used a condom?

Hi Worried Guy 06, HIV cannot pass through condoms. If your exposure was fully protected then there should be no need to test but it is great that you are conscious of possible infection when having sex with partners of unknown statuses. Your negative results at 3 months is conclusive - you do not have HIV and you do not need to retest. Hope this helps. Kindest regards, Becky
