My penis became in full contact during masturbation with the external side of an anally used condom of an HIV+ person, After the anal coitus, the condom was exposed briefly to the air (less than 10 seconds), before i started to masturbate with it, i kept masturbating and came with the condom around my penis (uncircumsided), without thinking in the risk. can you tell me how real of a risk it was?

Hello,

Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about the risk of contracting HIV from a used condom, assuming the condom was used by someone who is HIV positive. Condoms are not intended for reuse, and will not be as effective in preventing HIV transmission when used incorrectly. [1]

Recommendation: Refer to your physician for follow-up

Regards,
AIDS Vancouver Helpline/Online, Dyson
