chances of infection
Jul 28, 2003

Hi My story is somewhat embarassing but I guess I'll have to get into the details to make my question more specific. I am a 24 yr old male who had sexual intercourse 2 nights before with a woman who I know has had multiple sexual partners in the recent past. Though I had a condom on,during intercourse my penis slipped out---and the condom came off. I did not penetrate again before i got a second condom on, but during that time I realised that the condom had come off and I got a new one, i might have had a few seconds of brief contact with her genitals---my simple question is---what are my chances of being infected and how much should I be worried? What should I be doing now? Would really, really appreciate it if you would help me out-- yours sincerely, anonymous

Not a workplace question. Please re-direct this question to the transmission section of this website. Thank you.
