I have sex with an unknown female HIV status person (one night stand). I use latex condom all the time and it did break. However I was wearing a shirt all the time, later I noticed it had white stain  the bottom front part of the shirt (probably fluids). I usually wrap my shirt inside my underwear. So my question is if there is a risk of HIV of body fluids going through my urethras from my shirt?

Hello,


Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about the risk of HIV transmission through vaginal sex with a condom that broke. From the information given, this scenario is determined to be High Risk (there is evidence of transmission through these activities and are the majority of cases of transmission).

The scenario mentioned above does meet the three components of the transmission equation.

Although your intentions with using a condom were highly responsible, you mention the condom had broke. Due to this, vaginal fluid may have entered through the urethra during intercourse.

Helpline Transmission Equation .jpgCondoms are a great way to protect yourself from HIV and other sexually transmitted infections, however, using them does not lower your risk of transmission to zero because of the chance of the condom breaking or condom misuse. If you are continuously engaging in High Risk activity there are biomedical approaches such as PrEP and PEP that help lower your risk of acquiring HIV. Refer to your physicians for further information.

Recommendation: Refer to a health care provider for HIV testing.

Regards,

AIDS Vancouver Helpline/Online, Rashell
