sex during her period

Feb 9, 2003

I was having sex with my girlfriend with a condom during her period. There was blood on the condom and around my penis after. If she did have any diseases, is there any possibility of contracting them?

Response from Mr. Kull

If the condom was used correctly throughout sex and it remained intact, then it should have protected you against HIV and some other STIs that one could get through contact with an infected person's fluids.


Cold Symptoms or HIV?
!!!sharing toothbrushes or shavers!!
