chlamydia and broken condom.
« on: February 09, 2011, 02:14:11 AM »
Dear friends, I'm a 23 years old guy who had some bad luck and now i can't sleep for something than happened.

Last week i had some sex with a friend, the las 2-3 mins the condom broke and i finished inside (I was the top).
After the play he confessed he was Poz and my nightmare started... I went to my sex health clinic where i got tested for everything and chlamydia was positive, now I am under medication for that; they said i didn't have it in my body for a long time since i didn't even have symptoms except a light burning feeling when peeing.
I'd like to know if there is a big risk for me to get HIV since the condom broke, and after the chlamydia stuff and (nurse asked me to relax and wait a few weeks to get the blood test) now I cant sleep and I feel pretty bad about my sex life, i am even thinking about stopping having sex ever ever.

Any advice you can provide me will be highly appreciated. Please give me some real facts, I cant sleep =(

Wicked,

Sorry for the delay in getting a response. I'm not quite sure how we all missed your thread for so many hours.

Chlamydia is a very easily transmitted bacterial infection, while hiv is a very difficult to transmit virus. The odds are very much in your favour that you will not become infected with hiv from this very brief incident. I have yet to see a top end up positive over a condom break and I don't expect you to be the first.

However, what happened is not totally without risk and you do need to test. The earliest you should test is at six weeks, as the vast majority of people who have actually been infected will seroconvert and test positive by this point. A six week negative must be confirmed at the three month point, but is highly unlikely to change.

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
