Recently had sex with two different girls. I used a condom on both of them. The sex lasted about 5 min for both and when I cummed I pulled out and condom was still on and didn't looked broken. When I cummed all the cum stayed inside of the tip. I pulled off condom and washed my hands. After had shower. Any risk ? Do I really need to get testes based on these two simar events ?
Thanks.

Hello and thank you for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline. I am happy to answer your question.

Firstly, great job on using condoms for your sexual activities! They are a great way to help prevent the transmission of all STIs including HIV!

Unprotected sex is considered a high risk activity, but since you used a condom, your risk reduces to that or a low risk situation. The low risk designation assumes that there was no condom breakage, but still holds a risk level just in case the condom did break.

In terms of testing, this is all up to you. If you feel confident that the condom didn't break or that both of your partners were HIV negative to begin with, testing may not be necessary. Remember that you can only acquire HIV from someone who is HIV positive! If you are unsure about the status of your partners or are not fully confident in the condoms you used, testing may be a good option for you. Here at AIDS Vancouver we always encourage regular testing for all those that are sexually active.

If you live in the Vancouver area, there are many testing sites available to you. I will list some below. If not, you can get tested at your local doctor, or get in contact with a hospital or medical clinic in your area for more information. Feel free to give us a call if you need help in locating testing sites in your area!

1. Bute Street Clinic: 1170 Bute Street, 604-707-2796

2. St. Paul's Hospital: 1081 Burrard Street, 604-707-5600

Lastly, please note that HIV tests are considered conclusive only when they are taken 3 months post-exposure. You are able to take tests before this time, but they cannot be considered conclusive. However, they may be accurate. HIV test accuracy goes up over time, up until the 3 month mark.

I hope I have answered all of your questions and provided you with enough information to move forward. I wish you the best of luck with whatever decision you choose to go with!

Sincerely,

Caroline
