Lamb Skin Condom

Apr 11, 2008

I'm a gay male. I was seeing someone and we finally decided to have sex. This one time, I decide to bottom. I made the mistake that I thought the condom that was used was latex. It was lamb skin. The guy I was seeing didn't ejaculate in the condom. Should I be really worried? He claimed he was negative but I really don't trust people.

Response from Dr. Frascino


Lambskin condoms are designed to prevent pregnancy; however, they do not prevent transmission of HIV! That your top-gun did not ejaculate decreases your risk of acquiring HIV; however, I would still recommend you get a single rapid HIV test at the three-month mark to confirm your HIV-negative status. Should you be really worried? No. Should you get HIV tested? Yes.

Good luck!

Dr. Bob
