This is Joce here. Last week I met this guy at a party and we jelled well. We ended up sharing bed space for the night. It was protected interaction where in he used condoms. I just wanted to know is there any probability of getting herpes /HPV. I have heard it can be transmitted through skin contact. Although my interaction was protected I am worried about this one
condoms reduce transmission of herpes by 30% on average. if used properly, they reduce transmission of hpv by 90%. Proper use of a condom is, when the clothing comes off, the condom goes on. Just waiting to put it on prior to penetration isn't protecting you properly.
the risk from a one time protected encounter is very low. we don't recommend any testing from it unless you develop symptoms.
Thank You. Actually he did day that he had a protected session with a professional worker somewhhere in Asia (and that was afterwards we did). That is the reason I ask. Grace- would you be able to tell me what are the chances of female-male trasnmission (keeping in mind the possibly protected session with a professional)
