Question: Hello,

I had sex with a guy yesterday. I was the active partner ( I fucked him and got sucked too ). No kissing.

Sorry but I have to describe it in detail because I am scared now.

He drunk after that he smoke weed , before sucking my cock he had poppers and after that he wanted to sit on cock . I said no. let me wear condom . I wear condom ,put lube then fucked him.
I checked condom while pulling it off ( it was not broken , i put water and checked it was not leaking at all) . condom was there throughout penetration. but he sucked me without condom.

by looking at him that he was not even cared about condom initially ,so now i have many questions in my mind. and he was getting fucked like anything ( looks like he was too sex addicted ). thats why am worried.

I googled it , and found that . it should not be a problem ( being TOP reduced the chances ,also while anal it was protected throughout ) .

Is there any need to go for PEP ? it 24 hours now
Am i safe ?
Thanks ,
doctor

Brief Answer:
Better to go for PEP

Detailed Answer:
Hi, thanks for using Healthcaremagic.

I went through your query and understood your concerns.

Though it was protected intercourse, still you had direct contact for some time which was superficial, so there are chances of secretions coming in contact directly. Risk of STD's is possible, Risk will be minimal but not safe intercourse completely. Even a minimal virus entry is enough to cause disease in future,
So its better to go for PEP, and get tested for infection

Hope I answered your query. Feel free to ask further related query.

Hello Doctor

Regarding : still you had direct contact for some time which was superficial

Which contact doctor ? ... there was no direct contact at the time of anal

Are you talking about oral sex ?? Wearing condom throughout the intercourse (anal sex ) is not safe enough ?

Not questioning but is it not true PEP is when there is no protection used ? Hope you understand my concern and help me with it.
Thank you once again.

Appreciate if you can reply soon . Thanks a lot

hi, i am 16 and last month i had my period then i got drunk and 2 days after i had finished my first period, i started a second period, i have asked why on Google and it says this is normal to have two periods in a calender month, however this month i am late by about a week. Why would this be? my diet and sleeping patterns have not changed, i am also not on the pill or any medication but i am in a relationship but we use protection all the time. It could just be me worrying but is there any chance me having a double period last month has interfered with this months period?
