Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum

If you have used the condom correctly, there was no leaking or tear, then you are almost safe from HIV and AIDS. Condoms are quite safe (almost 99%) in protecting from STDs and HIV but not 100% safe. So you should ideally be quite safe.

However if you develop any symptoms like fever, penile itch or discharge etc, please consult a doctor immediately. Hope this helps. Take care!
