Broken condom during sex with "mexican sex worker"

Mar 19, 2012

hi i had sex with a female sex worker in mexico about a year ago, during which the condom split. i didnt notice this until i had finished. what is the chances i have HIV? i have felt light headed and weak for about 3 months resently.

Response from Mr. Glenn

Thanks for your question,

Since your condom split that time, it's important that you're tested for HIV/STDs if you haven't already. (You would have needed to get tested three months after the sex).

I'm sorry to hear that you've been feeling light-headed recently.. however, I can tell you that isn't because of a possible HIV infection. The timing just isn't right and such a general thing as light-headedness doesn't point to anything specific.

Hope this helps!
