poor choice really afraid of hiv and upset with myself
« on: February 23, 2013, 07:18:00 PM »
35 year's old in military ,met a csw thru online did a prescreen of her asking about HIV test and the usual she says she always tests and is safe.  Masterbated using shampoo before this encounter and shaft of penis was irritated and stung when touched, its was located at upper half of shaft below the head it was red in between folds maybe raw but no bleeding didn't seem like a cut . Back to encounter had protected sex however condom slipped to upper half of shaft last few times of shoves I'm pretty sure tip of penis was covered as I climaxed I withdrew penis came out of condom and condom was sitting halfway or less than halfway out of her vagina I could see my semen in the condom.  My concern is my irritated skin on my shaft I'm sure was exposed inside her vagina and her fluids what's my risk for infection as I'm stressing and  2 weeks later had headaches , swollen gland on neck and sore throat so I'm worried..thanks for time in reading this

You never had an exposure. The condom covered the head of your penis and that is all that is required.
