saliva and condom

Oct 31, 2000

I had a one-night stand. I used a condom, the woman first gave me oral sex with the condomon. Then I penetrated her, did not come, and then removed the condom. I spat inside it to lubricate it and put it back on. The woman carressed my penis with the condom on for a minute or so. Since I had penetrated her before, is there a chance that my saliva on the inside of the condom could have deteriorated the effectiveness of the condom's HIV barrier, exposing me to possible infection? (the condom did not break)

Response from Mr. Kull

Please refer to a previously answered question Saliva as lubricant.


Does herpes affect libido?
