I called an escort from backpage, she seems pretty ok, I asked her if she had any STDs inluding HIV and she said no.

Before the actual intercourse she gave me a SKYN condom(Polyisoprene), I put it, I fingered her vagina for some time with my fingers, then I had sex with her only one time, once finished I checked the condom, it was intact and semen inside it.

What are my chances of getting HIV or any other STDs from this encounter.

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 had protected sex with a commercial sex trade worker.

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

Protected vaginal or sexual intercourse is a Low Risk activity. This means that it presents a potential for HIV transmission because it involves an exchange of body fluids. There have been a few reports of infection attributed to these activities (usually under certain identifiable conditions).

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.

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

  • HIV Basics


  • Risk Assessment Chart


  • Smart Sex Resource


  • Thank you for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline.
