HIV transmission concern
Jan 6, 2013
I had some sores at the base of my penis and had sex with a condom. There was vaginal fluid on the base when we finished am I at risk ?
Response from Ms. Southall
Hi This does carry some risk but small. The sores or openings would have to be new, as they happened during sex. This is a risk but again very small. But not just for HIV but for all of the other STI's. Depending on the sores, I would recommend following up with your health care provider for evaluation.
Be well and stay safe, Shannon
