Hello Dr. Benjamin
My story was, I had protected vagina intercourse and unprotected oral sex (I am receiver). Both with a sex worker. I have few questions: 1. Was my risk of getting HIV infection high? 2. When should I get my test for HIV? 3. I am uncircumcised. Will this adding more risk to my condom usage? I hope I can get answers soon. And million thanks.
Response from Dr. Young
Hello and think you proposing your question about post-exposure prophylaxis.
1. Your overall risk was very low. The risk while using a condom for vaginal intercourse or any oral sex is very low.
2. it's recommended have a HIV test one and three months after your exposure.
3. if you used a condom correctly, it makes no difference in risk if you're circumcised or not.
I hope that's helpful, BY
