HIV exposure
« on: January 17, 2014, 11:10:13 PM »
I recently have a protected sex with a sex worker in the philippines. she was on top of me and when i cum (inside the condom) she still keep on  banging me until my penis was soft. and when she get out on my top, the condom was still inside her vagina.  after we noticed that the condom remain in her vagina, some of my sperm is inside her vagina and she's very afraid that maybe i will get her pregnant so she washed her vagina immediately, she told me that they have weekly check ups for STDs and Monthly for HIV. Do you think im exposed? its been 3 weeks since it happened. should i go for test or wait for 6 weeks?

You did have a risk and you can test at 6 weeks past any possible exposure and again at 3 months to confirm the results . It does no good to test any earlier than 6 weeks .

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.

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!

Poropo,

If the condom was hanging out of her and not pushed up inside where she had to dig it out, then you did NOT have a risk for hiv infection.

You should always hang onto the base of the condom when you withdraw your penis from an anus or vagina. It makes life less stressful that way.

Make sure you read the condom and lube links in my signature line (or Jeff's - they're the same links) so you can know how to use condoms correctly. Also use them consistently and you will be protected against hiv.

Thanks Ann,

Yes as far as i remember, she easily took it out of her vagina that time so it means that the condom was hanging on her. and the sperm leakage is from the bottom. and i've read all the post here related to my situation and i've learned that im in low risk from exposure? correct me if im wrong.

Poropo,

You didn't have a low risk, you had NO risk.

Although you do not need to test for hiv infection over this specific situation, as a sexually active adult you should be having a FULL sexual health check up at least once a year. If you haven't been having regular check ups, it's time you started. It's what responsible, sexually active adults do to protect their own health and the health of their sexual partners.
