Impeachment 1997
I do a blowjob for my boyfriend last night, and I do a penetration in his anus about 5-7 second then I pulled out my penis and wearing a condom, before that I was give him a lubricant. Do I have a risk because of penetration with a lubcritant without condom? Do I must have a VCT test 3 months later?

Hi there,

Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about the risk of HIV transmission after having unprotected anal sex. Based on the information provided, this scenario is determined to be High Risk (There is evidence of transmission through these activities and are the majority of cases of transmission).

In order for transmission to occur, a number of requirements must be met (see below).

HIV transmission requires the presence of HIV positive fluid (such as blood, semen, vaginal fluid, pre-cum, rectal fluid, breastmilk, etc), coupled with a High, Low, or Negligible Risk activity, that provides the virus direct access to the bloodstream. 

The activity you described above is considered High Risk as any HIV positive fluid that may have been present would have direct access to the bloodstream. The use of spermicidal lubricants alone do not protect against STIs, including HIV. In addition, some spermicides contain a chemical called nonoxynol-9 (N9), which can irritate the lining of the vagina or rectum, therefore increasing the risk of HIV infection (1). While condoms do not reduce the risk of transmission to zero, consistent condom usage is one of the primary ways to protect against HIV transmission.

Recommendation: 
Refer to a health care provider for HIV testing.
