Dear sir i had sex with prostitute twice a week ago, first she gave me uncovered blowjob and masturbating my penis, then she put condom on me but i discharged quickly but i kept hoing 10-15 sec when i removed flaccid penis out but my head was covered with condom after that she removed condom from my penis. After an hour i had sex again but i was jerking my penis with my hands in between, same hand i tried to rub her vagina before 10-15 minutes. I dont know weather she was hiv positive but i am super worried and since yesterday feeling nausea and sore throat.pleae tell me if i should go for hiv test?

Hi,


Thanks for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline, we are happy to help answer your questions.

It sounds like you were worried about engaging in sexual activity with a commercial sex worker, but we want to let you know that it does not increase your risk of acquiring HIV. We use the activity, and not the individuals involved, to get an idea about the risk associated with an exposure.

It sounds like you received oral sex, which is considered a negligible risk activity for acquiring HIV. Even though there is some potential for the exchange of bodily fluids, there has never been a confirmed report of transmission happening from this activity.

Then, you mentioned engaging in protected vaginal intercourse, which is considered a low risk activity for acquiring HIV. It sounds like your condom remained intact and prevented the exchange of bodily fluids. There have only been a few reports of acquiring HIV attributed to protected vaginal intercourse, under certain identifiable conditions (e.g. broken condom), which may not apply to you.

Lastly, you mentioned that there may have been bodily fluids on your hands when you were masturbating, from when you rubbed your partner's vagina. We are not concerned about bodily fluids coming into contact with a surface, like your hands, genitals, or outside of your body since, HIV cannot be passed on after bodily fluids are exposed to the air.

While you may be experiencing symptoms, these can be for many different reasons. Symptoms alone cannot tell us if an individual is living with HIV or not; only an HIV test can. We encourage you to partner with your local healthcare professional to find out whether your symptoms are related to HIV or not. This exposure does not seem to require an HIV test, but we always suggest that sexually active individuals be tested for all STIs, including HIV, regularly to maintain their health.


We hope we have helped you out and encourage you to check out the rest of our website at http://www.aidsvancouver.org[www.aidsvancouver.org](www.aidsvancouver.org) and also, the risk levels for different activities [http://helpline.aidsvancouver.org/question/risk-assessment-chart](http://helpline.aidsvancouver.org/question/risk-assessment-chart).
