Stressed in Australia
May 23, 2010
Like to first say you are doing a great job. At the moment I am mega stressed about something that happened last week. Basically a guy performed oral sex on me (I wouldn't do it on him as I know this is riskier) then we took turns at protected anal sex....well what I hope was. My condom was on fine however his looked a little loose, it didnt slip off or break (to the best of my knowledge) but I am scared that precum maybe leaked out during sex or there was precum on it as he put it on. He pulled out before he ejaculated.
Since then I havent been able to eat or sleep properly, I have gone to the doctors to help with my anxiety, hasnt yet helped. Think I am going nuts!
How scared should I be???

Hey Stressed-Out Aussie,
Your latest boy-toy had a loose fitting condom? So I guess you weren't doing the horizontal mattress mambo with Mr. Big, eh? Nonetheless his minnie-me was latex enshrined and the condom did not slip off or break. Your worries about precum leaking out are unwarranted. Just how much of a precummer was Mr. Tiny Weenie? How scared should you be? Not at all based on what you've written. If you remain worried despite my reassurance, get a single HIV-antibody test at the three-month mark. The result will undoubtedly be negative, but if testing puts your unwarranted fears permanently to rest, it will be worth the time and effort psychologically.
If your treatment for anxiety hasn't been helpful, I recommend you see a psychiatrist for a more complete evaluation and further management.
Good luck mate. Try to relax. "She'll be apples," OK?
