Condom slip

Aug 16, 2013

Hi- I recently had sex with an escort. After a night of drinking my buddies took me to this woman's house for the session. It was my first time using an escort. I immediately put on a condom and we proceeded. Maybe 5 min into it we switched positions and I noticed that the condom came off. I'm not sure at what point it came off. I immediately put another one back on and we finished. How much are my chances of getting HIV or other stds from this and how soon should I get tested.

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there,

In this situation, transmission of HIV was unlikely. You started with a condom, were the insertive partner, and this was a one-time occurrence. All of those details indicate that transmission would be unlikely. Transmission of other STD's would be possible.

Unless you are experiencing symptoms, I do not think you need to test for this incident in particular. This is with the understanding and expectation that you are tested for all STD's, including HIV at least once a year, and preferable every six months. If that is not the case, then I would suggest a full round of STD testing 90 days from the incident, and then mark your calendar for routine testing six months from that date.

In health,
