mustabation after sex

Feb 18, 2012

I recently had sex with a prostitute. I used a condom. After finishing sex i removed the condom a masterbated using my hand. I din not vaginally enter her without a condom. my feer is, could it possible that when I touched the condom some virus got to my hands and went to my penis as I musterbated. I had a mild flu and soar throat four weeks after. It lasted for 3 days.
