Can HIV be contracted through protected intercourse?

Hi Doctor, I had sex with a sex worker yesterday and I don t know if she was HIV positive or negative. When I asked her she said she was disease free. Not to forget we used condom when we had sex. I didn t cum in her vagina, as I lost interest between when I was doing good it. I took of my penis from her vagina, along with the condom and I touched the condom with my hand. Later she she sucked my penis without condom and jerked it off with her hand. So my questions are: Did I get in touch with the HIV virus when I touched my condom, after removing from her vagina, assuming she was HIV positive? I did remove the condom from her vagina to check if it broke. Is there anyway I might have got the HIV virus, when she sucked my penis?

Hi,
Thank you for posting your query.

The main routes of transmission of HIV virus, are primarily sexual, blood transmission, oral through exchange of body fluids. Chances for getting HIV through oral sex is low but several factors that increases the risk, including sores in the mouth or vagina or on the penis, bleeding gums, oral contact with menstrual blood, and the presence of other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).
Also touching the outer cover of the condom might be a risk if you happen you have any cuts on your fingers or hands.
Rest assured chances are less.
If in any case of doubt, I would suggest you to consult a doctor and to get done an antibody test.

Kindly revert back to us for any further queries.
Thank you
