worried, question for Andy or Ann
« on: April 14, 2009, 03:23:05 PM »
I had vaginal sex with a call girl.Used condom ,no breakage .when put condom on ,rolled condom 2/3 the length of penus..
After intercourse ,took condom off and discarded.
Shortly After intercourse my pubic area was itching,so I was scratching enough to cause  some abrasions .Also had some minor jock itch.

Could some of her vaginal fluid possibly

 have infected me.

Should I be worried and should I test?

The other thing is that my scrotum has been aching 2 to 3 days after and I was experiencing hot and cold flashes.

Could you get back to me with your Advice.         Thanks

2/3 is good enough because the head of your penis was covered and that's the main concern.

No, you weren't exposed to vaginal fluid in any dangerous way in the incident you have described. There is no need for testing.

Whatever is causing your symptoms has nothing to do with HIV. If the symptoms persist you should discuss them with your doctor.

We do recommend that anyone who's sexually active ought to regularly have a full STD panel done. That means at least annually. Other STDs are much easier to acquire than HIV.
