|abrasion during protected
Aug 2, 2014
Hi Dr. I recently had protected vaginal sex with a casual sex worker. The condom remained intact, but I had an abrasion on the shaft of my penis not covered by condom I don't think.the abrasion was perhaps a few hours old, but I am not sure if it was aggravated during sex. I did not notice any blood or discomfort. Please assess my risk. Thank you.

It is highly unlikely this abrasion was able to act as a portal of entry for HIV. If you remain concerned, get an HIV test now and in 4 weeks if using a combo Ag/Ab test or 12 weeks of only Ab test available to you.
