Low but not zero: Definitely recommend getting tested. It takes a few months, typically to convert to hiv, so you can get tested now to confirm your negative status and then consider repeating the test in 3months. There are other stds to consider: chlamydia, gonorrhea, herpes, hepatitis b and c. Good luck and i hope it all comes back negative.

Broken condom: Yes you have been possibly exposed to any illness your sex partner has as a broken condom makes you susceptible even though it was only a few seconds. Report this and any symptoms you get to your doctor to see about any necessary tests and or treatment.
