I had protected sex with CSW on 12/05/2016 at 2pm.
Their was a protected oral sex. After that I have throw the condom and used the new one.
I sex with her only for 5 secs. Also i have ejaculated with in that 5 secs.
Their is no condom brokeage.
But while removing the condom the end part touched my urethra.
I am in fear. Does any one got hiv from using condom.
Do I need to take PEP.?

Hi there, and thanks a lot for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline for your HIV/AIDS related health information. It seems you're concerned about HIV transmission possibly occurring. We're happy to answer that question for you.

First off, it's great you decided to use a condom for your encounter, as condoms substantially reduce the risk of transmission of HIV and other STIs. Protected sex is considered a low risk activity. Low risk means that transmission is still possible, but also required are specific circumstances (like the condom breaking, for example). To see the risks associated with this and other activities, we encourage you to check out our[ risk assessment page](http://helpline.aidsvancouver.org/question/risk-assessment-chart). This is the case even if the end of the condom touched your urethra. This would not be a significant enough exposure for transmission to occur, so PEP is not necessary.

That said, have you ever had an HIV test? We always recommend HIV testing for all sexually active people. If you've never gone for a test, we encourage you to go.

Thanks a lot for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline with your question, we hope it has eased your concerns a bit.
