Oct 31, 2013
hi iam quite worried because i shaved my genitials and i had a cut not on my penis but where my pubic hair is. i then went to see a sex worker but during sex she once on top and kinda rubbed herself on top of these cuts straight after we finished the cut was stngin. so i had a shower. my question is that could i have contracted any thing through these cuts.

Hello there, I'm not sure if you used a condom during vaginal sex but if you did than your risk of HIV infection would be low. However, other STDs can certainly be transmitted during skin to skin contact and if you are concerned/have symptoms I would suggest seeing health care provider. If a condom wasn't used than you would be more at risk for both HIV as well as other STDs. Take care, LHW
