|Protected sex turned unprotected
Jul 8, 2012
Doctor, i would like to raise my concern here. I have had intercourse with a prostitute on 28th June. I used latex comdom. First i had vaginal intercourse, from front side. Later i asked her to turned and started vaginal penetration in doggy style. As soon as i penetrate from rare, lady said condom is torn remove immidiately hearing some tearing voice. Then i came out imm and removed condom, and put another condom and had sex in doggy style and cum. later i checked the broken condom by putting tap water, it had 3-4 mm whole on left side below tip. Does this broken condom had exposed me with the HIV risk. I am worried on this front. What is the risk level in this act. Should i get tested for HIV test and when ? Or shouldnt i be worried at all. As per lady she was tested negative 2 months back. But cant rely being a pros.

Hi Sorry to hear that the condom broke, but I'm glad that she noticed and you changed immediately. Yes the risk of HIV transmission increased some but not a lot. If you did not have a cut or open sore on your penis then the chances of HIV transmission occurring is very small.
But because there was a tear and you were exposed to vaginal fluids I would recommend testing not just for HIV but for all of the sexually transmitted infections. The guidelines for HIV testing are to be initially tested at 3 weeks then again at 3 months, if both of these tests are negative then so are you. Going in for the first test you can ask for testing for the other STI's.
Be well and stay safe, Shannon
