Hi! I have a suggestion for your PIV flowchart (

You could also add one for when you're using a condom, and it breaks:
1. before ejaculation, while outside the woman's vagina. [Although I suppose that last part doesn't really qualify for the PIV page.] The risk is probably pretty low in that case.

2. before ejaculation inside the vagina (the one you do have on breaking condoms doesn't clarify whether the risk is different if you catch the break and replace the condom before ejaculation, which I would think might lower the risk some.)

I just think that some people might look for those questions, so you might add them to the options.

Thing is, per #2, there's no telling if the risk is greater or smaller, because that depends on if there were sperm in a given man's pre-ejaculate, something no one can know.

For the first one, if there's been no genital contact at all, there's just no risk.
