Condom Rupture

Nov 8, 2010

Hi Dr. Bob,

I have seen many advises from you which surely is a great help . A few days back i met a gal at a bar (well known to be a pick up point ) . we had few drinks and later we went in a hotel . I weared condom pretty well and with all the acumen and know hows. after 4min or so my penis felt like more warm than normal so i just took out and found that the condom is ruptured. i soon cleaned my penis with soaps and lukewarm water. Shall i good ahead with HIV Test ? I am very tense and nervous. please advice.

i will surely do donation for this invaluable advise.


Response from Dr. Frascino


Condom failure (breakage) carries the same HIV-transmission/acquisition risk as unprotected sex. Consequently yes you should get an HIV test at the three-month mark.

Good luck.
