Frightning experience
« on: August 13, 2008, 09:39:56 PM »
Getting straight to the point I had an sexual encounter, me being the receptive with a TS over the weekend and the condom broke in the process . I've never experienced anal intercourse only rubbing and attempted penetration  as was the case in this scenario but the condom broke while the TS was trying to insert his genitals in my anus. It was very painful and from reading current post i didn't have the proper lubrication , so I'm assuming that was probably the catalyst for the condom break. However, assuming that the TS was positive being that I'm negative is it possible for me to contract Hiv from this incident even though their wasn't intercourse / or attempted penetration . My concern is from the possibility of pre-cum being in the condom or on the tip of the penis and it coming in contact with my anus during the condom break. After getting home and showering i checked to see if there were any cuts/bloods due to the encounter being so painful. The next morning i had a bile movement and it was slightly painful as a result i checked my stool and found traces of blood in my stool.

I am a little unclear from your post...was there penetration or not?...if there was when the condom broke, there could be a risk, though from your description it is probably quite small.....the vast majority of people who are infected develop antibodies to HIV within 6 weeks. A test at that time, followed by a test at three months to confirm will be conclusive.....

The tip of his penis was the only contact to my anus being that is was very large and that I'm still a virgin, so i assuming the force of his penis trying to penetrate and the wrong lubrication caused the condom to break.

It's highly unlikely that you would have been infected in this situation. Hiv is a fragile, difficult to transmit virus that is primarily tranmitted INSIDE the human body. If I understand you correctly, she was never actually INSIDE your body.

You can test at six weeks for peace of mind. The vast majority of people who have actually been infected will seroconvert and test positive by six weeks. When there's been a real risk, only a three month test is conclusive. However in your case where there's been no actual penetration, I'd say six weeks is good enough. You're really only testing for peace of mind.

Please read through all three condom and lube links in my signature line so you can avoid broken condoms in future.

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
