sex with a shemale and condom broke!!!
Dec 10, 2013

This is really embarassing, but one night i ended up sleeping with a shemale. She told me she donated blood every 3 months and took her hiv test right after our night. However, the thing that i am concern is she had perform oral sex with me while i was protected. This part i am not worried about, but when we were intot anal sex, i inserted her for 3 or 4 times and realized something was wrong until i saw my condom torn. I did not ejaculate inside her or anything. I am really concern about this. She keeps on emphasizing she is safe and clean but i am so worried and cant sleep through the nights. I found out something called PEP but is it really recommended? I hear the side effects are horrible. What should i do here from now on?

Response from Dr. Wohl

It is too late for PEP, which is use of HIV medicine to protect against infection after exposure. PEP works best if started soon after the exposure and is unlikely to help this far out.

You should get HIV tested about 10 days after the encounter using an HIV p24 antigen/antibody test or an HIV RNA PCR plus HIV antibody test. Get tested again in 2-3 months.

I would also recommend testing for other sexually transmitted infections.
