Response from Ms. Southall

Hi Condoms are effective in the prevention of HIV transmission, as long as they are used correctly and do not break or slip off. You gave yourself the best protection for HIV transmission. Ensuring that you used a different condom for each act and ensured that it was always in place and there were no tears and or slippage. Your risk is extremely low to no risk.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon
