A few hours ago I met a pretty woman from Thailand. She said she's been in the U.S. since 1995 but I wouldn't doubt that she's been living here for only two years according to her accent and language barrier. Through attraction, we hit it off right away and she invited me back to her place. I did not have a condom but fortunately she did. She pulled out the condom from her purse, opened it and put it on my penis for me. It was an unlubricated condom. She started to perform fellatio on me WITH the condom on. After a little while of that, she then excused herself and went into her bathroom and came out with a bottle of some type of lubrication. She put some on her vagina and some of it on my erect condom covered penis. She then climbed on top of me and rode me. After a while, she stopped and asked me if I'd like to get on top of her. The guilt and anxiety of having intercourse with a stranger was really starting to get to me so I told her that I rather not get on top of her. Instead, I took off the condom and she finished me off by putting some lubrication on her hand and masturbated me. After I ejaculated, she gave me a tissue and a type of sanitizer to wipe the semen off of my penis.
I am extremely nervous about having HIV. I live in the United States, in New York to be specific. I am straight and have been tested before.I am nervous because I know condoms are not 100 percent effective against stds. I am quite sure the condom did not break while we were having sex.I also checked my penis thouroughly for scratches and cuts; there are none. But I am still worried. Does the condom have to break to get hiv? The woman was also from Thailand. I know that Thailand has the highest prevalence of hiv in Asia which also worries me.
Doctor, what are your thoughts?
I have a girlfriend and do not want to put her at risk. Please help.
I will get tested as soon as possible. When do you think is the soonest I can get tested for this disease?
Welcome to our Forum. I'll be pleased to answer your question and am equally please to tell you that there was no meaningful risk of getting HIV from the activities that you have just described. It is statistically unlikely that your partner ha HIV- few women do. In addition, even WITHOUT a condom the risk of getting is quite small from the activities you describe- the risk of getting HIV from an infected partner is less than 1 in 10,000 acts of oral sex, less than 1 in 100 from genital intercourse, and virtually zero from masturbation, even if you get your partner's genital secretions on you in the process. Using a condom which remains intact reduces the risk at least 1000-fold more, making the risk from genital intercourse with an infected partner less than 1 in a million.
The reasons that condoms are not perfect is because they break about 1% of the time they are used and because some people use them incorrectly, such as after they have already started to have sex.
From what you say, you can be confident that the condom you used worked. This was a no risk event and from a medical perspective there is no reason for even testing for HIV. If you feel you nee testing, I believe that the public STD Clinics in NY test using a combination of a PCR type test and the standard HIV antibody test which provide definitive results at any time more than 4 weeks after exposure.
I hope this information is helpful to you. There is no reason for concern. EWH
