Condom bursted while with sex worker
« on: May 28, 2011, 07:41:59 AM »
Dear all,

Last night I had sex with a sex worker in a massage parlour. When I started ejaculating, suddenly the condom bursted.  The bursting sound surprised both of us and I immediately removed my dick from her vagina; actually, i remember that I stopped when heard the sound and she got up so fast to push me back, because she knew I was coming. Stunning faces. The forehead of the penis was totally uncovered. At that time, my dick was still ejaculating, I gave it few last strokes so the load came all out.

Now, I know I have risk. Let expect the worst, the girl has HIV. So my questions are:
1. Seriously, what is the chance that I get HIV over this incident?  
2. Why in some cases you guys immediately recommended PEP?
3. Should I go to doctor to start PEP? It's not over 24h yet from the incident.
4. In case you suggest a NO for PEP. Then, why should I take the risk? If I take PEP now, I would ensure  HIV-infection free, rather than waiting for bads happen.

Thank you for yours valuable inputs,

You had a very low level risk for HIV. The condom protected you until it broke. Even  assuming the woman is  HIV+, HIV is a fragile virus and significantly harder to transmit from female to male. This was a single and brief possible exposure.

Taking all of that into consideration I do not consider doing PEP to be indicated in this instance. Test at 13 weeks just to confirm what I expect will be a negative result.

In the future make sure you are using condoms which are fresh and fit you properly.

By the way your ejaculating during this incident is irrelevant as far as any risk to you. It's the receptive person who is at risk when unprotected ejaculation takes place.

I expect you to come out of this incident ok.
