Oral sex and condom issue!
      #243550 - 12/15/08 10:41 PM

I recently had sex with an ex-girlfriend from 4+ years back. During the incident I fingered her and briefly gave her oral sex, then applied a condom correctly except it was not completely to the base 9maybe 1-2cm away. We had sex and afterwards I noticed a lot of vaginal secretions at the base of my penis. They did not appear to have gotten inside the condom. 2 days later I awoke with very swollen lymphs under my neck and behind my ears. I did just take 5 finals and was a little sleep deprived so I don't know if this is the cause.
Also she commented after sex about how condoms don't work, leads me to think she doesn't use them.
Should I be worried, should I get tested?

Giving oral sex, especially to a female, would be considered of some theoretical risk, if the female was to menstruate. But then, even in such circumstances the risk would be too remote.

As for the condom, I don’t think it failed. Condom breakage is a subtle phenomenon and it is EXTREMELY unlikely an event like a condom breakage would go unnoticed. You may choose to test for calming your fears, but in terms of the exposures you report, it wouldnt be needed.

Good luck and use condoms.

Take Care

God Bless you

Stay Well

Love Ravi
