Hi, I had protected vaginal sex with a prostitute and unprotected vaginal oral sex. I am worried do I need to get tested?
Hi, thanks for your question. Protected sex is considered safe sex, that is if the condom was on before any contact with vaginal fluids, it remained on during sex and the condom was still on when the penis was withdrawn from the vagina. Unprotected oral sex - in this case - mouth on vulva ( vaginal entrance, labia and clitoris) is considered low risk for most sexually transmitted infections. You... Read Full Answer

Hi Sir, I had received oral sex from a transgender. She had used condom. But I am not sure, whether that condom is teared, That transgender is HIV affected, and She had enough bleeding on her mouth. From the next 2 days onwards, I have body pain and tiredness, even my joints are paining little bit. So I am afraid of this. Could you please advise me if there is any chance of HIV infected and any tests that need to be taken. Thanks a lot if I receive a reply from you.
Hi, Thanks for your question. We do not see HIV passed to people receiving oral sex. Condoms protect against HIV, and it is usually very noticeable when condoms break or tear. Even if the condom was torn, the chance of getting HIV from that experience is still very, very low. Any blood in the mouth would be diluted by the mouth saliva. Also, if you were exposed to HIV the symptoms would not... Read Full Answer

Hi, thanks for your question. Withdrawal is one method of contraception that is used world wide. There are two considerations in the scenario you describe. 1.
