Chances of having contracted HIV

Jun 23, 2012

Dear doctor,

I had protected sex with a street prostitite 7 weeks ago and the condom broke, I only found myself wearing a ring around my penis at the end. I had not been involved in any risky behaviour before and had a skin infection already, and it was after testing negative. is it possible I am HIV positive.

Response from Dr. Wohl

It is unclear from your post when your last HIV test was. I recommend testing for HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases now if not already done.


Can I relax.......?
