Last Friday i went to sex worker for hand job. She gave me one condom. I don't know whether that condom already used by another person. I ejaculated in that condom can i get HIV. If another person's hiv positive semen already there in that condom. And that semen mixed with my semen and went into my penis / urethra. Can I get HIV ?

Hi there, thank you for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline for HIV and AIDS related information.

The simple answer to your question is no, you are not at risk for HIV whatsoever based on your experience. Firstly we try not to deal with 'ifs' and hypothetical situations as these can bring us a lot of anxiety unnecessarily. To address your question, however, this would not put you at risk for HIV as the virus cannot survive outside the human body. If there were any HIV virus in the condom it would be dead an unable to transmit. Also keep in mind that sex workers are often more aware of sexual health than regular people and they are therefore more likely to practice safe sex and are less likely to transmit the HIV virus.

I hope this answers your question, if you have any further questions please feel free to contact us again!

In health,

Arne, AIDS Vancouver Helpline Volunteer
