HELP......Large donation on its way!!!!!
Aug 25, 2006
Hi, I recently had an sexual encounter where I am concerned that I may have been exposed to HIV. I am a male and in the process of putting on a condem on a someone (who was a casual sexual encounter) I at first out it one the wrong way, I immidiately noticed it and turned it around, kind of rub it with my fingers to wipe away any pre-cum and then we had anal sex ( I was bottom). Would this incident put me at risk? I am considering going to an ER to see if I can get PEP, is this an over reaction?
Response from Dr. Frascino
I would not recommend PEP for such a minimal risk. Yes, you are indeed overreacting.
If you're worried, get an HIV test at the three-month mark. The odds are beyond astronomical that you did not contract HIV from the events you describe in your question.
Thanks for your donation! (www.concertedeffort.org) One gift can touch many lives in desperate need, turning despair into hope.
Be well. Stay well.
