Answer

Hi You have done exactly what we educate people to do and that is using condoms for any type of sexual experience decreases your chances for HIV transmission. Cleaning yourself afterwards as well as pulling out immediately following ejaculation all reduce your chances for transmission. To be sure continue on your testing course and get a test at 90 days, if that test is negative then you are HIV negative from this experience, continue being safe and keeping those condoms close at hand.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon
