Hi, doctors, I had sex with a sex worker, I used condom. However, when I finished, I did not remember removing it, so maybe, it was stuck inside her I don't know. I also did not have ejaculation. Did I have some risk of getting HIV or other STDs? Please help me, I'm very worried about this

Hi there, and thanks a lot for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline for you HIV/AIDS related health information.

It sounds like you are concerned about your risk of HIV transmission after having unprotected intercourse with a Commercial Sex Trade Worker.

First of all, Commercial Sex Trade Workers are no more likely than anyone else to be HIV positive. This is why, on this forum, we focus on the activities performed and not the individuals engaged in the activities.

You say that the condom must have slipped off during intercourse. For this reason, I will focus on unprotected sexual intercourse. Unprotected vaginal or anal intercourse is considered a High Risk Activity. This means that they present a potential for HIV transmission because they involve an exchange of body fluids. In addition, a significant number of scientific studies have repeatedly associated the activities with HIV infection. There have been a lot of confirmed reports of infection in this way.

Here at AIDS Vancouver we encourage everyone to make HIV testing a part of their regular health care maintenance routine. The only way to know your status is to be tested. If you feel that you would like an HIV test you can visit your health provider and ask for on, or you can click on the links below to find a testing centre closest to you:

  • HIV 411 (Canada)


  • CDC.gov (USA)


  • AIDS Maps (Outside Canada & USA)



  • On this forum, we focus on HIV risk. Please visit [Smart Sex Resource](https://smartsexresource.com/) for more information about STIs. You can also ask your health care provider for an STI test.


    I would also encourage you to check out the following resources about HIV:
