i'm worried

May 5, 2014

hi! i'm 32 male from tel-aviv israel. i'm married with 2 children. before 3 days i ha encounter with transexual prostitue, we had oral sex and anal sex (i was on top). both was protected i don't think the condom was broke but it was dark and i couldn't check... since then i'm in panic and don't know what to do. do you think i need to get tested and avoid sex with my wife? thank, great work youre doing here.

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi We know that condoms are effective in the prevention of HIV transmission and oral sex carries incredibly low risk of HIV transmission. With both of those situations being what you experienced your risk of HIV transmission is incredibly low. You should receive a full STI screening though as HIV is not the only sexually transmitted infection that is out there and they are much easier to get with and without condoms. I would recommend you seeing your health care provider for a full screening and yes avoid sex with your wife until you know your full health status.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon
