Had a protected sex when girl were having period.

Jul 29, 2013

I had a protected sex with a prostitute in china, I was wearing a letex condom, but when took the condom out there was blood on condom. I immediately changed a condom and she washed her vagina. then we had protected sex again with new condoms. But from that day I am really scared if i am having any risk of HIV. Please help me.

Response from Dr. Hightow-Weidman

Hello there

Condoms are effective in preventing HIV transmission as long as they are used correctly, with water-based lubricant, and don't break. It sounds like in your case you used them correctly and they did not break so your risk is negligible.

Take care, LHW
