|Protected first sex
Aug 21, 2012
Dear Dr. I'm a senior high school student, I had sex with a partner who I was sure that has 70% HIV disease. I used " extra safe durex condom " in order to protect myself. In the middle of the sex I have added one more condom so as to double my protection. The thing that has freaked out me, is that the first condom might broke during the sex or during the covering my penis, because my penis is kinda big so it was difficult for her to cover it, and after it covered, it didn't go in easily, so she used a cream. I'm just so freaked out. I didn't kiss her or anything, and I didn't do the anal, is there any disease rather than HIV to be transmitted? Please help me with that to resist my fears. Thank you

Thanks for your question,
There would be no risk for HIV from the sex you had as long as your condom didn't break. It sounds like you're nervous that it broke, but not sure that it did. In fact it doesn't sound like you saw or felt any breakage. Therefore it sounds like it didn't happen. It doesn't matter if it was vaginal or anal sex.
However, in the future it's important that you NEVER DOUBLE UP YOUR CONDOMS. This actually increases the chance that one of the condoms (or both) will break. That's because the latex shouldn't be rubbing together.
In terms of other STDs, it's a good idea to get tested regularly for a full run of STDs and to talk with your sex partners before sex about their status.
Hope this helps!
