again after 2 years
« on: September 12, 2007, 06:02:53 AM »
Hi! All
I had Protected sex with a Sex worker 2 weeks  back ( only sexual contact in last 9 months), lasted about 10-12 minutes.
and I do not remember clearly how i removed the condom.( i think i pulled it by holding the tip)
after few minutes  i got scared , picked up the condom from the Bin , filled it with water to check any breakage/leakage. There was no leakage.
i have been reading other posts for last 3 days, it calms me and alarms me sometimes.
Do i need to test for this incident ?

As i was tested in january/2007 as my wife was pregnant then, We both were negative. Just had a baby and she is breastfeeding, this worries me more, as i have been trying to avoid sex with my wife...........i am so so confused...

Please Pleae Help once again as you did  2 years back ,you guys were the only one who helped me eased by mind.

veer,

Condoms have been proven to prevent hiv infection. You used a condom and so you did not have a risk.

You do not need to test over this incident.

HIV is certainly character-building. It's made me see all of the shallow things we cling to, like ego and vanity. Of course, I'd rather have a few more T-cells and a little less character. Randy Shilts

Condoms do a very effective job as far as HIV is concerned.

Guilt is a whole other matter so if you are lugging that around about having strayed, do yourself, your wife and family a big favor, take a breath and let that one go. Guilt is just poison in a relationship. You did what you did. Let it go and get on with your life.

There's no need to be further concerned about HIV in relation to this incident.

Cheers,
Andy Velez

Veer,

In your case, thirty days IS conclusive as you did NOT have a risk in the first place.

You ARE hiv negative.
