Used a Condom with sexworker, but still worried!

Feb 18, 2014

Hi, im going through a pretty tough time of late on a "personal level", about 6 weeks ago I had sex with a prostitute, I was was a bit tipsy from drinking however this did not distract me from making sure the condom was on properly, and I kept checking the base was on without a slip-up. After a few lousy minutes (she was on top) then I was on top, I stopped, pulled out...(no ejaculation) probably 3-5 mins of intercourse at most...I asked her what she did with the "used condom" and proceeded to check there were no leaks or breakage etc...This I did by holding it tight and making it bubble" to see if any air leaked or "pre-cum" etc....(obviously the condom was off when doing this)....I washed my hands and left..., clearly ive been thinking and regretting the "STUPID" decision, and I have had the odd "groin pains" but no its made me even more paranoid than reading about "lymph nodes" and pain etc is related to symptoms of HIV. im very scared and regret this stupidity and wat to get my life back on track.....yours concerned...

Hi there,

Bottom line: The condom protected you from HIV.
