Safer sex ?

Jul 16, 2003


I was 4 weeks ago engaged into sexual intercourse with a sex worker in Africa. At that time, I did not have any comdoms with me so I borrowed before 2 from a friend and put them on. The only issue, is that they might have been expired and I do not know their status(fortunately, they did not break) Was it safe ? I have had so many ars symptoms since then which may be related to anxiety. Thanks for your answer.

Response from Mr. Kull

If you didn't observe any breaks or tears, you shouldn't be worrying about this. Even if the condoms had expired, this should have little impact on the protection they imparted.
