I am really scared. it was dotted moods condom. please tell me. I am scared Davie
Response from Mr. Glenn
Thanks for your question,
I understand you're worried, but remember: a latex or polyurethane condom prevents HIV as long as it doesn't break! So it doesn't sound like you were at risk.
What's going on with your foreskin may just be because that's a sensitive part of the penis..
Hope this helps!
