I had PROTECTED vaginal sex for few seconds.  After that I NEVER removed my Condom. I just enjoyed foreplay for 30 min.  In this 30 min I had PROTECTED oral sex. My question is in that few seconds of vaginal sex what if some vaginal fluid touched my skin beyond the condom and slid into the condom.  Am I at risk?

Hello,


Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about the risk of acquiring HIV after engaging in protected insertive sex. From the information given, this scenario is determined to be Low Risk (evidence of transmission occurs through these activities when certain conditions are met). 

The scenario mentioned above
could meet the three components of the transmission equation if the condom was not used properly or if the condom broke. If there was a breach in the barrier, then there is a possibility that fluids containing the HIV virus had direct access to your bloodstream.
Helpline Transmission Equation .jpgCondoms are a fantastic way to limit the likelihood of HIV transmission, but they are not 100% effective. Engaging in protected sex and regular HIV and STI testing are great ways to continue supporting your sexual health. Additionally, if you are continuously engaging in higher risk activities, there are biomedical approaches such as PrEP and PEP that help lower your risk of acquiring HIV. Refer to your physicians for further information about these biomedical approaches.

Recommendation: Refer to a health care provider for HIV testing and completely conclusive HIV testing outside of the window period (3 months post-exposure).

Regards,
AIDS Vancouver Helpline/Online, Marie
