Almost there.  8 week antibody test was negative.  Will take one more in a month.  Thought I would provide an update.

Regardless, I still fully expect you to test negative.

Now go get busy with some other aspect of your life before you drive yourself nuts and take us with you!

Very large Girth, Female condom
« Reply #102 on: June 30, 2013, 01:00:56 PM »
Hooked up with a guy who hand incredible girth/thickness.  He had a hard time getting on a regular condom and wrapped up with a female condom.  Used lots of lube.  We didn't go very long (receptive anal) due to his size and he didn't cum.  He pulled out and was still completely wrapped up and female condom intact.  He also showed me a test result from march showing his negative status. 

I am assuming I don't even need to test over this event since he used a female condom that stayed intact and he didn't even cum.   Wouldn't ask but never used a female condom before. He said he had breakage problems even with large condoms and thus uses the female.  Kind of nice that it fully covered him.

Your thoughts?

You didn't have a risk as long as the female condom was covering his penis and intact .

Large girth, female condom

Sorry.  Been awhile since posted last and wasn't sure with the new $9.99 charge.

Female condom was completely intact so I am good.  Seemed thicker and sturdier than a male condom and went much further down his penis.

Appreciate the reply.

I agree with Jeff. Testing is strictly only for your peace of mind. I don't see any risk in your latest experience and I wouldn't expect anything other than a negative result.
