HIV risk if I used condom but saliva as lubricant

Oct 8, 2013

Hello I am writng you because the last 10th of september I had a situation that I dont know if it is a risk or not. I had gay sex with an unknown person. I was the bottom. We kiss each other and we made the oral sex with a condom. Then when he made the sexual penetration he used his saliva as a lub. Always we used condom and it never got out from his penis. I am very scared because Ive felt a lot of nausea and I ve lost my appetite sometimes. I most say that since august Ive taking Montelusak because I ve got several allergy and also I ve took doxycycline for two months and I dont know if those pill are causing the nausea. Thank you very much for reading I am relly, really scared yours sincerely Marco

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi Marco,

Thanks for writing in. Using spit as lube would increase the chance of the condom breaking, but since the condom did not break the risk was not increased. The condom protected you from HIV.

In the future, be prepared with a condom and small lube packet.

In regards to the nausea, please contact your doctor immediately to inform them of this as it may be a side-effect of the Montelukast that needs to be dealt with.

In health,


plz plz fouth time i sent on oral sex
