Dear Dr..What if I was given an oral by someone which she used a condom that was reused by someone who is HIV+..What wold be my risk? do i need testing? Thank you Dr..
Response from Ms. Southall
Hi My first reaction was to tell you to bring along our own condoms so this doesn't happen again and you know what protection is being used. Secondly, the chance of HIV transmission occurring in this manner is very small. You have to have cuts or sores on your penis and the condom would have had to come from the previous person immediately onto you and I'm guessing this didn't happen. So the likelihood of HIV transmission is not there but the likelihood of other sexually transmitted is possible.
Be well and stay safe, Shannon
