Worried that I have std risk after visiting a masseur and with a cut on my penis

Hi, I visited a masseur yesterday and had body to body massage with her. While she was giving me a handjob, my penis foreskin was pulled down and it was painful for a short while probably due to sudden pull.

After that I engaged in blowjob with condom. However, the expiry date on the condom package seem to have faded away. The condom was probably bought more than two years and kept in my wallet.

When I got home and bathe, and pull down to wash my penis, i noticed a cut and slight blood at the intersection but not bleeding profusely.

Do I have any risks of STDs?

The cut was probably from her puling on the foreskin too hard, if that's where you felt the pain.

Even if the condom had expired, if it didn't break (and when they break, it's very obvious), you're protected.

When you had the body to body massage, did your genitals rub against her vagina? If they did, you could be at risk for syphilis, HPV and herpes (and I know there is some question as to whether or not you already have it - I just answered your question in the herpes forum). You should know that if you do have hsv2, rubbing your genitals against someone else's genitals can transmit it.

Hi, thanks for your reply. Nope there is no genital contacts at all. Just breast to the area above the vagina.

I had the massage on about 36 hours ago and got tested for rapid syphilius and hiv around 12hours ago(about 24 hours after the sexual encounter) They came back negative. Do you know how accurate is it?

Also because I was scared, I am starting to take HIV Pep as it reduces the risk of HIV within 72 hours after exposure. Do you think there are any side effects from taking that?

I will be grateful, if you are able to share further insight on your comment on expired condom.

Your tests were way too soon, but you didn't need them. You had no risk.

It can take up to 90 days to test positive on a syphilis test, and up to 28 days to 6 weeks on an HIV test (depending on what kind of test it is).

Again though, you had NO RISK. You certainly don't need to be taking PEP, and I would strongly advise against it. There are definitely side effects - headache, nausea, diarrhea, insomnia, and in rare cases, liver damage.


Depending on what meds you are taking, you can also have raised pancreatic enzymes, and raised triglycerides.

Obviously, if you had a risk, these side effects can be managed. YOU DID NOT, and these side effects are too dangerous to risk.

You have no reason to fear this. You had no risk.

Dear Aunt Jessi,

Thank you for your help thus far. My results are back.
I am tested negative for Syphilis, HSV but the tests detected e.coli on the swab test.

Combining the tests that just came back with my previous history of HSV2, does that mean the swab test conclude I have no HSV2?
Appreciate your advice in all the above.
No, the swab test just means that there was no detectable herpes on your skin at that time. It doesn't mean you don't have herpes.

Has your fiancee tested yet?
Hi she is hsv free.
Should I go for another igg blood test to reconfirm if I have HSV2?
I heard that if a masseur has her saliva on her hand when doing handjob for me, it may lead to HSV too.

Can you advise on this?
That's not true. Handjobs never transmit herpes, or any other STDs.

You can take another test to confirm. If you've never had genital to genital contact with anyone other than your fiancee, and she is confirmed by testing to be hsv2 free, then I have no idea how you'd get hsv2.

Here are some threads from doctors, when we had them on our site, that help explain why handjobs don't transmit STDs -
