Actually, 5 days back I had sex with an commercial sex worker, at first I put the condom on but during the intercourse I felt a different sensation i.e broke inside than I immediately changed my condom and start the intercourse till the time I ejaculated. I was so nervous and worried about my condition which is why I asked to that CSW whether she is infected or not but she refused my question by saying that she has a family and a daughter BACK in her home for whom she is very much concern and can't trade for money she also said to me that they used to takes a good care of their health more than other by cleaning mouth with alchohol and daily 3 to 4 times bath used sentized tissues to wipe and many more. So, my question is that, can I totally rely on her statement or should I go for a test?

Hello,


Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about the risk of HIV transmission from unprotected vaginal sex. 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. It was very responsible of you to wear a condom. However, because the condom broke, vaginal fluids or blood had direct access to your bloodstream via your urethra. Even though you immediately changed the condom the scenario is still determined to be high risk regardless of the time of exposure.Helpline Transmission Equation .jpgIts also important to note that when determining transmission risk we focus on the activity and not the person, therefore the scenario is determined to be high risk regardless of the HIV status of the other individual involved in the activity. If you are continuously engaging in high risk activities 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,
