    Good afternoon. The chances or risk of contracting HIV when the condom is properly used is very minimal. washing without the use of condom or with condom use?

    You said minimal, so there is still a chance? what are the chances like. and a rinse of the penis after sex and after the condom has been taken out.

    Yes, there is that chance of getting infected. The risk is less than one percent. The chance with penis wash is also dependent on how careful one is while washing.
