what should i do if a condom breaks

After such an accident, you and your partner should get tested for STDs, including HIV, as soon as possible. If you have been exposed to the HIV virus, ask for postexposure prophylaxis (PEP), a “morning after” treatment for HIV that may prevent infection.

The treatment is a monthlong course of HIV (antiretroviral) medications that are most effective if you start them right away
