confused? Feeling to die.
Oct 13, 2013

good morning sir where ever you are. My question is around 7 weeks before i had sex with a girl 2 times in 2 days with a moods condom and i did not feel any breakage at any act. Then here is the worst part, i got to know that she is hiv positive 1 week after my incident and i searched many thing about hiv in internet. I also saw some website saying that you can get infected with hiv even using condom there i was very scared and also from past 3 weeks i have ulser in mouth,sore throat and rashes. Now i am feeling that i am infected with hiv from that girl ,, i am very scared to get tested for hiv. Sometimes i feel like commiting suside. Can you please understand my situation and please assist me. 1) am i infected 2) what are my chances of being infected with hiv.

Response from Dr. Wohl

You can not get HIV if you were wearing a condom. There is a theoretical risk of transmission if animal skin condoms are used due to the pores in such material.

You do not have to worry about HIV transmission from this encounter.
