So I found a condom that glows in the dark , unused in its package , the package was little bit damaged ( it had a small cut probably because people might have stepped on it , and the color of the package was faded as well ). The condom didn't have any fluids or what so ever, it was unused , just a little sand ( I live near the beach ) . So I wore it just to see how the condom looks . Is it possible that i have caught any STDs ? I am so worried. I want to do a blood test .
thanks in advance

Hi there, thanks for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline with your questions and concerns. We're happy to help!

I'm happy to let you know that your situation is No Risk. The reason for this is that HIV cannot survive outside of the body. Once outside of the body, the virus becomes inactive and damaged and can no longer be passed on. This means that any HIV on inanimate objects, such as on the condom, is no longer infectious and thus any risk is eliminated. This is why you need direct contact for HIV transmission.

No testing is necessary for this situation!

I hope this helped! Please visit avert.org for more information, as well as smartsexresource.com.

Sincerely,
Christina
