Can HIV be contracted through unprotected intercourse?
I recently had sex with a sex worker using protection, but the condom broke before ejaculation and I stopped it there. Am I safe ? Should I take any tests for STD ? If so, when ?
The possibility of getting HIV or other STD is very unlikely.
Welcome to HCM. I have gone through your query and understand the concern you are worried about.
You had protected sex with a sex worker and the condom broke just before ejaculation then the risk of getting HIV or other STD is very less with such single short exposure even though she is positive so don't worry because you are almost safe.
You can go for HIV testing to confirm your status as it will give you mental satisfaction and also help to allay your fear or anxiety related to HIV.
As your friend I will also suggest for monogamous relationship because these kind of activities are at high risk so better to avoid them. For any further query you can get back to me any time.
You can go for RNA PCR or 4tu generation Duos test after 15 days.
Welcome back and thanks for follow-up.
RNA PCR or 4th generation Duos test for HIV after 15 days is highly reliable so you can go for it.
For other STDs like gonorrhea, chlamydia, syphilis and herpes etc you have to go for separate test for each disease or take STD panel test which include all of them. For any query get back to me again.
Lesson Learnt. Will not repeat this mistake again.
