Last night I had sex with two street prostitutes. I was drunk but a condom was used and it did not rip or get damage as far as I know. Today I am devastated with anxiety because of the fear of HIV. As I have understood it there is still a small risk of contracting HIV even when a condom is used ? I have had an HIV test before because of a similar incident, however that time the condom broke, and that process was very tough for me. Had a test at 6 weeks and 12 weeks. If I don't suffer any symptoms of an infektion, what kind of testing do you think I need ? The only think that were done without condom was me fingering one of the girls.
Im thankful for the fast answer but I have some more questions on the mater.
Im worried because of the length of the act, some 30 to 45 minutes in total. I never came since I was drunk. Several condoms were used, a total of four, (one at a time) I checked them all the day after by filling them with water and they seemed intact. One of them seemed to have a little blood on the middle of the condom, still no risk?
I live in sweden, and a Swedish HIV forum this expert doctor recommend people who have had sex with prostitutes to get an HIV test even if they used condom. still he says that the risk is extremely small. He is a real STD expert but he is inconsistent when he answers the questions, which you here are not.
On the other hand I called a STD center at a big hospital in my town and explained exactly what had happened and the nurse said that if I used a condom and it didn't break there were no need for any tests.
On the internet I read studies implying that condoms lessened the risk of getting HIV in the range of a factor 5 to 20 depending on the study. So I'm a bit confused from the different sources of information. Is this confusing partly because of the chance of using the condoms incorrectly which might cause a rupture, or that he condom is not used the whole time? That was the answer that the nurse gave. Or is it more of a theoretical possibility that can be neglected in real life ?
I will answer to your last questions here.
1.) Provided the condoms were intact and in place, there is no risk. Obviously if you are not sure about this fact, you might need to get tested at the appropriate time, even though the risk would still be quite low.
2.) If a condom is used, there is no risk and there is no need to get tested, regardless if the sex was with a sex worker.
3.) Condoms are not 100% safe because there is a risk that they might not be used correctly, they might come off and they might break. If you use a condom correctly and this does not break or come off, there is not risk. That is why we call it 'safe sex'.
