Hi - 3 years ago i went to a massage parlor the lady asked me to flip over. she got undressed and started to masturbate herself. shen the started to masturbate me with the same hand. she the had acondom that was already opened in her other hand. she put the condom on me and started to give me oral sex. shen did this for a few seconds. she stopped the condom was intact. i am worried about vaginal fluds from her masturbating herself. i am worrind that there was vaginal fluid on the condom.

2 years ago i went to a different message parlor and thel lady fingered my anus. shen then handed me a condom i put it on my penis and she crawled on top of me putting my penis in her vagina. she got off a few seconds later. the condom was intact it did not break.

i am so scred that i have hiv. can you please assest my risk

Thank you for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline with your query.

It sounds as though you're feeling scared about your upcoming test because of some past encounters.

I'd like to reassure you that the risk of acquiring HIV from either of the situations you describe is very low.

In the first encounter, there was no direct exchange of body fluids between you and your partner. HIV is very fragile and cannot survive outside the body, and so vaginal fluid once exposed to air poses no risk for acquiring HIV.

Regarding the second encounter, protected sex is considered a low risk activity because the condom acts as a barrier to prevent the exchange of body fluid. There have only been *a few* reported cases of transmission, and it can be reasonably expected that this would be due to condom failure (which you did not experience).

Any test 3 months (or more) following a HIV exposure will provide a conclusive result, and so for these encounters, only one test is required.

Please do not be afraid to test, it is the only way to truly know your status.

I wish you the best

Yours
Wendy (Volunteer)
