Condom Came off
      #92401 - 03/17/04 12:40 AM

My partner is HIV positive (viral load undetectable) and I am not. We had sex on 3/13/04. The sex was not rough, however, after he ejaculated the condom slipped off inside me at some point. He said he did not feel it slip off. I am scared as hell because the condom was lodged up into me. I immediately stood up and pulled it out. When i pulled it out, it did contain some sperm...i am not sure if any seeped out. I am worried if some seeped out into me from the tip of his penis as he pulled out of me. I have not open wounds inside (at least it does not feel like it) MY stomach is full of butterflies and I am so afraid. He also performed oral sex on me (unprotected), however, there was no blood in his mouth. I am so scared.

Did you go for PEP? That needs to be started, at the most, 72 hours after the potential exposure.

National Clinicians’ Post-Exposure Prophylaxis Hotline (PEPline): 1-888-448-4911 (for clinical consultation)

In or Near San Francisco

call the research program hotline number, 415-514-4PEP, 24 hours a day (the previous number, 415-502-5PEP, will also work; the new one may be easier to remember). You may need to leave a phone number for a return call, which you will probably receive within half an hour. Or you can drop in at the PEP site, during certain hours, at either of two locations: San Francisco General Hospital Ward 4C, or the City Clinic on 7th Street between Harrison and Folsom. No appointment is needed, but call the number above to check when the clinics are open. Do not wait for open hours; use the telephone hotline so that if you are found to need treatment, it can be started immediately.

Other Locations

If exposed to HIV, you need to locate either a PEP program, or a PEP-knowledgeable physician. Unfortunately there is no national list of programs. A local AIDS service organization may be able to help; you can find one in your area by calling the National AIDS Hotline, 800-342-AIDS, 24 hours a day. (For a Spanish-speaking operator, call 800-344-SIDA, 8 a.m. to 2 a.m. Eastern time; for TTY, call 800-243-7889, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Friday Eastern time.)

Hope this helps

Life is meant for living, not fearing.
