Did I have a risk?
« on: September 03, 2013, 09:24:13 AM »
A guy topped me with a condom and came inside me. He lunged up and down a few times as he came. When he pulled out I saw that the condom wasn't on him and he reached to my anus and retrieved it, he didn't have to go in to get it. I saw that the condom was intact and had cum in it. He said that as he withdrew he saw the condom half way down his shaft. i didn't see that. I was a bit worried that his cum could have leaked out somehow as there was less in the condom than I expected although I realise that guys come different amounts.

A couple of things bothered me: As he was fucking mer it felt good and I thought to myself that it was if I was being fucked raw. I also noticed that there was a wet patch on the bed which I thought might be some of the cum that had leaked out, (could have been lube too).

Was there any risk?

Hi Star . Its not uncommon for a guy to slide out of a condom as he withdraws . In cases like this there is no risk because the penetrative sex was protected . The description you provided stating he didn't have to go in and get the condom suggest that he slid out of the condom and you didn't have a risk .

If you are uncomfortable and anxious you can test for peace of mind at the appropriate time . You should be having regular sexual health checkups at least once a year anyway , so although you do not need to test at this time for this incident you could test at 6 weeks past any possible exposure and again at 3 months to confirm the results .

Just remember to get checked out for ALL STD's when you get your checkups , some std's can be present without symptoms and are much easer to transmit than HIV .

Continue to use condoms correctly for vaginal and anal sex and you will avoid HIV .

Hi Jeff,
Thank you so much for your helpful reply. I kinda thought that it probably was a no risk situation, but my mind was coming up with all sort of ideas about how cum could have somehow gotten inside me.
I will test as part of my usual routine as you suggest.
