Hi,

Last night I had sexual intercourse with a member at nightclub. We had unprotected oral followed by brief intercourse, I noticed blood on my condom. I removed the condom, sanitized my organ, ran to washroom to check if condom was broken.

Condom was not broken. My tip, foreskin and more than first half of penis was covered throughout the intercourse. 

Is this a reason to worry for HIV transmission. Should I go to Doctor to get ER or Prep.

Thank you,
Will await your response

Hi there,

Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from your question, you are asking about HIV transmission after realizing there was blood on the outside of the condom after intercourse.

From the information given, this scenario is determined to be of No Risk (transmission of HIV is not possible in the given scenario)

Transmission is considered to be of No Risk for the following reasons:

Although 2 of the 3 components of our HIV Transmission Equation (see below) are technically met, there was no direct access to enter the bloodstream. If the condom was not broken, then there is a barrier between the blood and the urethra of the penis and transmission would not be possible.

Please refer to our HIV Transmission Equation below for more information:

Recommendation: No need for HIV test with the scenario provided, refer to a healthcare professional for other health related questions.

Thank you
AIDS Vancouver Helpline/Online, Shawn
