Zipper&condom scare!!! HELP

May 12, 2014

Hey. I had sex with a girl I kinda know but I just heard a lot about her. :( well early that day I cut my penis a few times on my zipper... Later that night we used protection for sex.. I looked down and it was a little blood apparently she said I knocked her period on.. Anyways rolling the condom off idk did I get blood on my cut or not we only did it for about 2 mins or less.. If I got blood on my cut am I at high risk for hiv really worried!

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there,

The moment you cut yourself the skin starts to repair itself. In a case like this the cut would not have been fresh enough. Also, just getting the blood on the cut would probably been enough either. It would have been a different story if you had not word a condom and were exposed to her blood repeatedly and having into forced into the wound via intercourse.

Bottom line: No risk.

In health,


oral sex risk in transmission
Worried my child was exposed
