Am I infected

Question: 

I had sex for the first time and the guy used a condom and sucked my breasts then I found out that he might have AIDS so is there a chance of me getting it?

Answer: 

Hello,

Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about the risk of acquiring HIV from sex with a condom. From the information given, this scenario is determined to be Low Risk (Evidence of transmission occurs through these activities when certain conditions are met). Safe sex is still considered to be low risk due to the possibility of improper use and potential breakage of the condom.

WHO states that when condoms are used correctly and consistently, they are highly effective in preventing HIV and other sexually transmitted infections [1].

Recommendation: Refer to Physician for HIV test
