Sex worker - mistake, very worried

Sep 12, 2013


I recently made a big mistake, one that I am hoping will not punish me for life.

I paid for unprotected sex with a {hilappino sex worker in Hong Kong. We used a condom but I am certain that for a few minutes we were have vaginal sex without a condom on. I did ejaculate but this was outside of her vagina, this part I am sure.

I will get tested but as you can imagine, panic stations and looking for your view

Response from Dr. Wohl

My view is that you had unprotected sex and that this carries a risk of sexually transmitted infections such as HIV, syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydia, and herpes, among others. The risk of HIV transmission from a woman to a man is lower than the other way around. However, you should get tested for these STIs.


Been asking for weeks, I need your expertise
