touched condom after vaginal sex

Jun 25, 2012

Dear Dr Richard Cordova.

Yesterday I had sex with a sex worker. Accidentally, after sex I touched the condom and later on I probably touched me penis or skin/clothes.

It is possible that I got any STD's (e.g. HIV) by touching the used condom with vaginal fluids on it?

I'm too worried about this incident, I can't even concentrate on work...

Should I ask for PEP (Am I eligible for such a thing)?

Luckily, the condom didn't break, or anything like that...

Thank you for your assistance...

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi, there:

No. I would not be concerned. You most certainly do not need PEP.

In health,
