I'm most likely overreacting
« on: June 06, 2020, 06:01:08 pm »
For my birthday I was kinda depressed and lonely so I went to see two adult escorts hours apart.

First encounter.

She gave me a blow job with a condom and I had sex with her with a condom. While we were having sex the condom went into her. I don't remember if I kept going but she stopped me. I put the condom back on and I finished.

The next day I was paranoid so I bought an at-home test kit(ora quick) and she agreed to take a test. It came back negative. Ora Quick says it's only accurate after three months.


Second Encounter:

I had sex with another adult escort and while having sex the condom slipped off in her and she replaced the condom each time. This happened two times. I don't think I kept going because she stopped me.

Do I have any risk? I'm kinda paranoid right now...

Receiving a blowjob is no HIV risk to you whatsoever.

As for the condom slipped off in her? Can you clarify was this slipping out of the condom whilst withdrawing or finding out the condom had come off completely during intercourse at some point and her having to retrieve it?

Here's what you need to know to avoid HIV infection:
Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, every time, no exceptions. Consider taking PrEP as an additional layer of protection against HIV going forward.

Keep in mind that some sexual practices which may be described as safe in terms of HIV might still pose a risk for transmission of other far easier to acquire STI's, so please do get fully tested regularly and at least yearly for all STI's including but not limited to HIV and test more frequently if unprotected intercourse occurs

Also, note that it is possible to have an STI and show no signs or symptoms and the only way of knowing is by testing.

Kind regards

Jim

Basically she stopped me when it was hanging out of her. In both visits with the women.
I tested the first one and the second one replaced the condom every time.

Hiya,

There is no way for you to "test" a condom.

I'm still unsure what you mean and I don't want to guess, so let me put it like this:

Slipping out of the condom whilst withdrawing is generally not an HIV concern for the insertive partner as long as the condom covered the head of your penis during the actual intercourse, so if this is the concern then move on with your life.

However, if the condom came off completely during the act of intercourse and you had condomless intercourse as a result it's an HIV risk to you that warrants testing to confirm your HIV status outside of standard routine.

Test for HIV antibodies at 6 weeks post-exposure with blood-drawn lab version, a negative result at that stage would rarely ever change. Retesting for a definite result is generally not needed but if you wish for peace of mind, you can re-test at 3 months.

If you are testing with rapid tests, they can be somewhat less sensitive to recent infections and the rule of thumb is simply to wait and test at 3 months post-exposure.

Sorry.

The first woman I saw her the next day and she took an ora quick hiv test for it. It came back negative. I don't think I kept going once the condom was off. Do I have a risk of using the same condom again?

The HIV risk with resuing condoms like above is they can break and should this happen it a possible HIV exposure.
