i will donate $50 (risk)

Nov 8, 2009

hello, congrats for yor job, it is wonderful i had a sexual relationship with a prostitute, we had vaginal sex 3 times, all of them with comdom. i had a sore in my tongue and we had many deep kisses am i in risk for hiv transmission? should i test? please respond thank you

Response from Dr. Frascino


Condom-protected sex is indeed protected, assuming the latex or polyurethane condom remained intact and did not break.

Kissing, even playing tonsil hockey with a sore tongue, is not considered an HIV-transmission/acquisition risk. As always, if, despite my reassurance, you feel you have placed yourself at risk for HIV, get a single HIV-antibody test at the three-month mark. Should you choose to do so, I'm confident the result would be negative.

Be well. Stay well.

Dr. Bob

Just an update
Promising statistically, but!!!
