It seems like there was some sperm at the base my partners

Resolved Question:

It seems like there was some sperm at the base my partners penis after he ejaculated.
My question is most of the sperm was in the bubble thing. There was something looking like sperm at the base. Could I have been infected if he had hiv?

Hello
the risk is low.
It is never zero, even with a condom.
All sexually active adults need HIV testing routinely.
If you think semen leaked out of the base of the condom, then you need HIV testing.
OK, so that is an initial answer….

Thank you Is there anything I can do ASAP. Such as going to see the doctor and take a medicine to reduce risk?
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 2 years ago.
It is unlikely that this meets the criteria for HIV prophylaxis, unless you know your partner is HIV positive.
In this case, maybe.
You have to do that within 72 hours.

It's been 12 hours.
Is there a way I can get the man to test tomorrow, and get same day result so that I could know?
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 2 years ago.
No test is going to be accurate for you , but if he has been positive and he goes to his doctor, he can test....maybe have it back the next day.
