Had Sex with a CSW and worried with Anxiety

Doctor,

Yesterday night I went to strip club and was ended having penetration with a strip dancer in Western New Jersey who appeared to be from central america .

She used a condom and everything lasted for about an minute or a minute and half and I ejaculted in the condom.

I later relaized how much of risk I took and the stuip mistake. I am worried with Anxiety and looking for help.

It has been about 24 hrs (1 day) since the exposure.

What are by probablities of contacting HIV or any other STD's (Herpes, HPV, Clamydia,  Gonherra or Syhillis).

I went to the doctors office today 14 hrs after the exposure and she did a baseline blood test for HIV and VDRL and told me to take another one at 6 weeks.

The fear and anxiety is kiling me  - How much of a risk am I at, Really appericiate your honets reposne and apologize for any spelling mistakes.

What are by probablities of contacting HIV or any other STD's (Herpes, HPV, Clamydia,  Gonherra or Syhillis) and what should I look for in the comming days.

I will never do it again and need help.

Welcome to the forum.

I'll first comment on "I later relaized how much of risk I took":  In fact, you took no risk.  Wisely, you used a condom.  Congratulations on that decision; because of it, you should not be worried.  Condoms work, so there was no risk of STD or HIV -- and given the brevity of the exposure, the risk would have been low.

Your doctor is being quite conservative; based on the exposure described, no testing was necessary at all from a medical or risk assessment standpoint.  But probably the negative results in 6 weeks will reassure you more than my words can do.

Of the STDs you list, the only one with a plausible risk is HPV -- and given the condom and very brief exposure, the chance of that is extremely low.  And all sexually active people get genital HPV at least once anyway; you're bound to get it someday, and may have had it already.  This particular event will make no difference.

I hope this helps.  Best wishes--  HHH, MD

Thank you so very much for the assurance and your words have definitely got more courage then expected.

I wanted to ask just about the risk of Herpes as well. Kindly please let me know.

Even without a condom, the chance of herpes from any single exposure is probably in the range of 1 in 1,000.  With a condom plus the brief exposure, it's 10 to100 times lower than that.

Don't over-think this.  Take my reassurance at face value and move on.  There are no additional circumstances you can think of that can possibly change my opinion or advice.

No STD causes the sorts of symptoms you described, including herpes.  Whatever the cause, they have nothing to do with the sexual event described, except that some may be due to anxiety/stress over the event.  Re-read my replies above; you COULD NOT have caught an STD.  Talk to your doctor if your symptoms continue or you otherwise remain concerned.  But I can't help any furhter, so this thread has to end.
