Condom slipped off but part dangling on vigina
« on: May 14, 2022, 04:22:05 am »
Good morning Forum and many thanks for your HIV educations and selfless services.

I had sex with  a CSW using condom. However , during the process I withdrew and found out that the condom was not on my penis, instead it was dangling in front of the vigina with part if it outside the vigina and rest inside. I simply pulled it out, changed condom and completed the act with the new condom.

After the act, I became very worried that I may have taking a risk.

Have  I taken a high risk and do I need PEP.

Many thanks

Hiya,

You slipped out of the condom whilst withdrawing, next time hold the base of the condom when pulling out.  Not an HIV risk to you, relax and move on with your life.

Here's what you need to know:
Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse correctly and consistently, with no exceptions. Consider talking to your healthcare provider about PrEP as an additional layer of protection against HIV

Keep in mind that some sexual practices which may be described as safe in terms of acquiring HIV might still pose a risk for other STIs. So please do get tested at least yearly for STIs including but not limited to HIV, and more frequently if condomless intercourse occurs.

Also, note that it is possible to have an STI and show no signs or symptoms, and the only way of knowing is by testing.

Kind regards

Jim

Good morning community and very sorry for my stupid act again so soon after last incident,

I had another encounter with a girl. The condom bursted but I noticed it immediately and pulled out. I think only trust is the one that bursted the condom and I felt it. I Changed the condom and continued with no more incident. The girl is positive and have been on drugs for years.

Please hows my risk and do I need PEP for this.

Many thanks for your usual support

Hiya,

TaSP - Treatment as prevention or U=U.

So a person living with HIV (PLHIV) who is on antiretroviral therapy (ART) and has achieved an undetectable viral load* in their blood for at 6+ months, can not sexually pass on HIV. Meaning even if condomless intercourse was to happen it would be no HIV risk to you. https://forums.poz.com/index.php?topic=71864.0

However, I can't guarantee that this person is or has been taking their meds.

The good news is until the condom broke it was protecting you and as the insertive partner there is less risk than being the receptive partner, but only testing will confirm your HIV status.

do I need PEP for this.

Taking PEP over this potential exposure is totally up to you. Keep in mind that PEP needs to be started as soon as possible post-exposure, no later than 72 hours.

If you do take PEP then confirm your HIV status by testing at 6 weeks post finishing PEP with a blood-drawn (Lab) HIV antibodies test, a non-reactive result at that time would rarely ever change and retesting at 3 months post finishing PEP is generally not needed.

If you don't take PEP then confirm your HIV status by testing at 6 weeks post potential exposure with a blood-drawn (Lab) HIV antibodies test, a non-reactive result at that time would rarely ever change and retesting at 3 months post exposure generally not needed.

Considering this is the 2nd condom mishap within a short time, I will post below as a refresher some tips on correct condom usage.

Use approved condoms and check for a certification mark (e.g. FDA, C.E., ISO or Kitemark) because the condom then complies with safety standards. Check the expiry date and make sure the condom is still within date.

Use lubricant condom safe water-based lubricants make condoms more comfortable and reduce breakage risk. but avoid oil-based lubricants as they can weaken or break condoms.

As for putting the condom on correctly:

Incorrectly done, the risk of breakage can increase. Place the condom on top of the erect penis and pinch the teat at the end of the condom before you start to roll it down the penis. By doing this, you'll squeeze out any air bubbles and ensure there is room for the semen (cum). Roll the condom down to the base of the penis.

If it's on correctly, it will roll downwards easily. If you've started putting it on the wrong way, take it off, and even if you or your partner has not ejaculated (cum), there can still be semen or (pre-cum), so it's important to try again with a new condom. (More to do with risks from other STI's/pregancy than anything else)

Finally, never "test" the condom before or after intercourse. It's not needed at all and could damage the condom, as it's not designed as a reusable (re-stressed) product, and testing could lead you to mistakenly think that the condom was damaged during sex, when in fact, you caused the damage after the intercourse by trying to "test" it.

Instead, use condoms correctly and consistently. If they don't obviously break during intercourse, there is no reason to stress or test for HIV outside of standard yearly screening.
