Need an expert opinion
      #8743 - 08/22/00 04:52 PM

Hi, I need experts advice regarding the condom use. Is it 100% safe? I have a concern over my personal experience that I had sex with commercial sex workers when I travelled to ASEAN countries. I used condoms all the time, however when I talked with people arond including some consulers, some of them told me that even condoms is not 100% safe against HIV virus. Is that true? After listening to all these, I began to feel very scared. Now, I find myself is very prone to bruise and it seems takes longer to heal a cut etc. Is that a sign of carrying this deadly virus? I had that a exposure about a month ago. Is that possible that the virus will start hitting my immunue system this quick? Many thanks!

If you used a laytex condom, and used a water based lubricant, and if the condom covered your penis, did not fall off or break, then you are fine.

Go have your other things checked out. I doubt that its HIV.

Why not 100% new

Listen, the reason why people say that condoms are not 100% effective its because not of the condom but of human errors like NOT USING the condom well, but provided that someone USE a condom the way it has to be, then it is scientifically 100% sure. Why? Because they are electrically tested, that is the use electron to test them. If an electron passes through one condom then that condom is wasted. Just you to know, even tough hiv virus is microscopically small, an electron is even more times smaller than the hiv virus. So its 100% sure. Allright?
