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.
I have been having protected sex with a casual partner. I have used a condom each time, the condom did not break or come off. However my partner bleed a few times and this was on the outside of the condom after sex. As soon as i noticed the blood i rinsed off in the shower with the condom on and then removed it and washed again. Is the condom a safe barrier from blood in this situation?
Its the same guy, that asked the question about the prostitute and unbroken condom. Well its been 29 after exposure. 3 days after I had sex I felt some pain in my penis for a week. 7 to 8 days a went to the doctor and got tested for any std and HIV. all of them came negative, but still have some discomfort. And the doctor said that I have a low risk for infection and that I might have a urinary infection. Well my question is after carefully checked the condom for holes which were none, and got tested for HIV with the NAAT test, after 8 days is there any possibility that I might be infected with HIV? Im so worried please respond asap. Thanks
