If you believe you have been exposed to HIV and want help to judge your risk, would like advice about HIV testing, or have questions about the effectiveness of condoms or risks associated with specific sexual practices, this is the site for you.
A week back, i had my only exposure to a sex worker during a massage. Of course I used a condom but after withdrawal I found blood on the outside of the condom. It freaked me out.. before I could understand i had already touched the blood with my fingers.. does this make me more susceptable to the HIV infection...I washed my hands and my penis immediately but since then I have been in a disasterous state of mind... pls help.
You wore a condom that was fully intact throughout the entire time of intercourse, meaning that the condom did not break and you were not at risk. You cannot get HIV from touching blood with your hands so that has nothing to do with the risk of HIV transmission during intercourse.
