Latex condom with Vaseline

Sep 25, 2013

I had sex with a prostitute. When I tried to enter my penis (which was covered with durex extra safe - more thicker than the usual condoms as you know) I can't because she was very dry so she took some Vaseline and put in her vagina 2 times during the sex something like this. I only day after heard that latex condoms with Vaseline is a disaster (although I didn't put any Vaseline on my condom). I am very very worried. The condom didn't rip apart or something like that it remained complete when I remember putting him out of her). Do I need to be worried?

Response from Dr. Wohl

No need to worry as condom remained intact but in general petroleum products like Vaseline can deteriorate latex condoms.
