Had sex with a prostitute. Scared to life.

Feb 18, 2013

Hello Doctor. I did a big mistake yesterday. I was curious and booked an escort to try sex. He kinda seemed shivering and I thought he was on drugs. I asked him if he was healthy and he said yes. I did him from behind using a condom. He gave me oral when my condom was still on. We have never kissed. The same night, I had two pimples on my neck. The next day, I have a swollen uvula. I am really scared about this. please help me with an answer. If I need to take any tests and what are my chances if my condom broke.

Response from Dr. Hightow-Weidman

Hello It sounds like you were protected the whole time with a condom during both oral and anal sex so I would say your risk for acquiring HIV is very low. Condoms do work when used correctly and consistently but certainly if there are tears, rips, etc. chances of getting HIV are not impossible. Hope that helps. Take care, LHW
