Double bagging

dear medhelp and all,

I had an encounter today with a sex worker. I did enquire if she had any std's but she said that test were done before and were negative. we engaged in bare body massage with oil and there was genital contact, after which we proceeded to have protected sex. after I finished once, we showered and did it a second time but this time with the two condoms.

what are the chances of me getting HIV/std's and when would I know if I should do any test? your reply would really put my mind at ease as I'm really worried and guilty about having done what I did.

You didn't have a risk.

Just for your info, you should NEVER use more than one condom at a time, you're actually greatly increasing your chance of condom failure due to the friction.  One condom with plenty of water based lube is sufficient.

You don't need a test, you didn't have a risk.

Hi nursegirl6572 thanks for your reply. Should I worry about the two condoms breaking though? I'm afraid that though the CSW said she didn't have any STI/HIV, she may not have been aware and I made the mistake of wearing two which could have exposed me.

The advice was for future reference.  You would have known if two condoms broke.
