Chest pain
Nov 18, 2010

Dear Dr. Bob,

A ton of thanks for your invaluable service to the mankind !!! .

The reason for my worry is the condom failure which i noticed after 2mins . after 2 weeks i am feeling pain around my middle of chest .i will get myself tested soon but are the two any how related. please take into account i have stomach gastric issue as well.

thanks CP

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello,

The two events are not related; however, both events deserve follow up. You should see your general medical doctor if you are experiencing chest pain. (Go to an emergency room if the pain is severe.) The condom-failure episode places you at some degree of risk for STDs, including HIV. An HIV-antibody test at the three-month mark is warranted.

Good luck.

Dr. Bob
