I did it 10 times!!

Jan 2, 2006

I have just passed through a rough 3 months. I mean rough, because after not having sex for a long long time, I had sex with a prostitute/sex worker 10 times in 3 months. Obviously this is a high risk woman.

In all the 10 times, the sex was protected sex, and the condom did not leak or break or slip.

I know you have answered questions from people who had one time protected sex with sex workers. You have always told them they need not worry if they used a codnom properly. But for me it was not one time - it was 10 times! Does this increase my risk for HIV/AIDS infection even though the condoms did not break? Would you advise HIV test beased on this information?

Response from Dr. Frascino


Protected sex, whether one time or 101 times, is protected if the latex condom was used properly and did not fail, OK?

Stay safe (every time) and you will stay well!
