I would like to ask about is there any risk of getting STI and HIV.

I have my very first time of sex with a sex worker on 19/3/2015 and is a protected sex. But towards the end after I ejaculated, my penis shrink and no longer hold the condom therefore causing the condom is stuck at her vagina and I notice that there is semen spill out back to my penis and some at her vagina.

I would like to check whether how high is the risk of having STD or HIV.

My blood test report came back after 33days post exposure (21/4/2015)

Vdrl : nonreactive
Tpha: negative
HIV I & II AG/AB (ELISA) : non reactive
Chlamydia igg : negative
Herpes type I : 19.4 (ab index <9 = negative)
Herpes type II: 3.1 (ab index <9 = negative)

Is my result conclusive? Should I do another blood test in July?

Many thanks

Hello and thank you for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline. I am happy to assist you.

Having protected sex is considered a low-risk activity for HIV transmission. Unfortunately, here at the Helpline we are only trained in HIV/AIDS related information and therefore I cannot assess your risk for acquiring an STI. However, using a condom is the best way to protect against STI transmission during sex.

You may wish to visit http://www.smartsexresource.com for more information about STIs.

Unfortunately your testing cannot be considered conclusive yet. All HIV tests are considered conclusive at 12 weeks (84 days) post exposure. In addition, most specialists consider the 4th generation ag/ab combo test conclusive at 6 weeks, but completely conclusive at 12 weeks. Since your test was before this time, it may be in your best interest to obtain another test for HIV at 12 weeks. In terms of your STI inquiries, contacting your local healthcare professional for information and testing options is encouraged.

I hope I have answered your HIV-related questions. If you have any more questions, please feel free to post on this forum again, visit our website http://www.aidsvancouver.org or call us confidentially.

Sincerely,

Caroline
