What risk of HIV?

Hi, last year I visited Amsterdam and had protected sex with 3 sex workers. Condoms were used everytime throughout the whole experience. When I got back home i had a hiv test at 2weeks (p24 and elisa4th gen) which came back negative, i also had a biosure test at 3months and 6months which was also negative.
My question is,
What risk of hiv is there if you use condoms
Did i expose myself to hiv
Should i test again at 9months

Hi Anxious Guy. The incident you have described is very low risk, the chance of contracting HIV whilst using a condom is virtually impossible. The BioSURE HIV self test will be conclusive 12 weeks post possible exposure so there will be no need to re-test at 9 months. I know this is easier said than done however I would recommend trying to put this incident behind you as we all have many worries and stresses in our life and HIV is not one of yours.
