Condom came off
Jan 7, 2012

i was having anal sex with a guy, he was top and i was bottom. after he came and as he was pulling out of me the condom came off him and was hanging out of me, am i at risk?

Response from Dr. McGovern

I would not consider you at risk for hepatitis B or C or HIV.

I would make sure you have been vaccinated against hepatitis A and B to protect you from any future exposures.

I am glad you are using condoms which are important for protection against HIV and HCV where we obviously don't have any vaccines.

Is Hep Vaccine Medically Necessary?
