Slipping condom

Nov 28, 2000

Hi. I had my first sexual experience just a few days ago, and when finishing out I noticed that when I got the penis out of hte vagina the condom I used slipped some 1-3 centimetres from the penis. I think that some 0.5-0.6 of it was still covered, but, still, what are my chances of getting HIV (if she's positive - I can't know that, though), all else being normal (no cuts, sores from my part)?. I am full of paranoical feelings right now....

Response from Mr. Shernoff

I am not an expert on HIV transmission. I suggest that you reask your question to The Body's expert in this area.
