Am so afraid that I may drop out of school bcos I cant concentrate anymore.please help me

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi There are other sexually transmitted infections that you can get even with using a condom. Syphyllis, gonorrhea, HPV, etc..... I would recommend that you follow up with your health care provider for evaluation. Since your sexual encounter was protective the risk of HIV transmission is extremely low.

Be well, Shannon
