Condom slip
« on: August 15, 2012, 04:59:43 AM »
Good morning all,
I had sex with a woman. Protected sex with a condom.
I noticed after a while when I took my penis out of her that the condom slipped for 1/4 to 1/2 of the length off the penis. Head still covered. I rolled it down again and continued to have intercourse. Did I have a risk when there were (deep) vaginal fluids on the exposed part of the penis. (and then and up in the condom after me rolling it down) I appreciate your help. Matterhorn

As long as the head of your penis remained covered, you had no exposure.

Matterhorn,

Hiv cannot be transmitted through intact skin or through small breaks or nicks in the skin, and that includes the skin on the shaft of your penis. As Rodney said, as long as the head of your penis was covered, you were protected against hiv infection.

The only areas of your penis where there are the right type of cells that hiv can latch onto and infect are in the urethra (where you pee/cum from) and on the inner lining of the foreskin (the part you can't see when the foreskin is pulled over the head). This is why you are protected as long as the head is covered by the condom.

Here's what you need to know in order to avoid hiv infection:

You need to be using condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, every time, no exceptions until such time as you are in a securely monogamous relationship where you have both tested for ALL sexually transmitted infections together.

To agree to have unprotected intercourse is to consent to the possibility of being infected with an STI. Sex without a condom lasts only a matter of minutes, but hiv is forever.

Have a look through the condom and lube links in my signature line so you can use condoms with confidence.

ALTHOUGH YOU DO NOT NEED TO TEST SPECIFICALLY OVER THIS CONDOM SLIP, anyone who is sexually active should be having a full sexual health care check-up, including but not limited to hiv testing, at least once a year and more often if unprotected intercourse occurs.

If you aren't already having regular, routine check-ups, now is the time to start. As long as you make sure condoms are being used for intercourse, you can fully expect your routine hiv tests to return with negative results.

Don't forget to always get checked for all the other sexually transmitted infections as well, because they are MUCH easier to transmit than hiv. Some of the other STIs can be present with no obvious symptoms, so the only way to know for sure is to test.

Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, and you will avoid hiv infection. It really is that simple!

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

Hello, last question. The answer is clear. So my anxiety of fluid on the uncovered part which may have come inside the lower part of the condom after i roledl down, and then reaching the head is my mindspinning? Matterhorn

HIV is not transmitted in that manner. You're just speculating with what ifs and transmission just does not happen in that way.

Let this go and get on with your life. HIV is not your problem.
