Posted on Wed, 30 Jul 2014
Question: Hello Doc,
Four days back I went to a strip club and the girl was completely naked.I did some fingering both of her vagina and anus and then she undressed me.There was vigorous frontage for at least two minutes and then I realized I might ejaculate and then slid my penis into my shorts and cummed inside my shorts...She ha asked me if I had chummed inside her..but I did not feel that I have actually inserted.I am very fearful now that I might have acquired HIV from the vigorous frottage..I am very sure that i did not penetrate her..if I had I would have known it right??

Brief Answer:
Be relaxed!

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for this query.

No one but you can tell whether you actually penetrated her or not. Whatever the case may have been, it is passed and we cannot change what happened.

The risk of contracting HIV and other related STDs is real each time we have unprotected sexual encounters. Because what happened is not clear to you, I will like to treat this as a potential exposure and follow up from there.

You have two options, you may want to get on post exposure prophylaxis or choose to get follow up with laboratory testing to see whether you contracted any infection or not. For this, you would need to see your doctor as soon as possible for a management plan depending on what option you choose.

Be relaxed about it. We cannot undo the past and am certain you would have acted differently should this happen now. What can make a difference is taking active measures to follow through and that s what I will encourage you to do rather than getting too worried.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Thank you so much for using our services and do feel free to ask for more information and clarifications if need be.
