i've had sexual intercourse with an escort oral and vaginal with a condom should i be worried about gettin hiv or an std or am i just stressing my self out
| Response from Dr. McGowan
Condoms are very effective at preventing HIV infection if used properly and consistently. You can further reduce your risk by using a dental dam (latex barrier..often flavored) during oral sex. The risk of HIV spreading orally is much lower (especially if you are the receiver of oral sex). I still recommend that everyone have an HIV test at least once to know what your status is.
