|Worried - Condom Slipped Off
Oct 13, 2013
Good day. Very worried over this, the scenario is:
- A "possible" HIV positive guy have vaginal intercourse with a girl who is HIV negative. - The guy used a condom. But it slipped off before the ejaculation - The girl did touch the penis for a while, to help the penis to erect, before slipping back the same condom and resume intercourse for the next 5 minutes until ejaculation.
Question is the girl hands may have touch the precum fluid on the penis when the condom slipped off, and when she help to put the condom back on, the precum fluid may reside on the outer condom. When resuming intercourse, won't the girl be in danger of contracting HIV through the precum fluid? Is this low risk or high risk? Test warranted?
Thank you. Regards, Worried Soul

Hi The risk is there but it is very low. HIV is present in pre cum. The one thing that has been seen in research is that if the person who is positive is on medication and has an undetectable viral load the risk of HIV transmission can be reduced by up to 97%.
Be well and stay safe, Shannon
