Hi there.

I had vaginal sex with a girl (one-night-stand) and didn't know her HIV status. At the time of doing it (4 weeks ago) I was HIV negative (recent tests were negative and no sex since then).
My problem now: When I tried to put the condom on, I tried to use it the wrong way, meaning the tip of my penis touched the wrong side of the condom for 2-3 seconds, I then changed it round and put it on correctly, i.e. the condom may have had penis fluid or pre-cum on the outside tip of the condom. I then had vaginal intercourse with her with the condom correctly on. I pulled the penis out and throw the used condom away. Any chance I may have infected myself with HIV since the condom should not have been used anymore? Should have been no danger for the girls since I should have been HIV negative at the time. Please help me!

Hello and thank you for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline. We are happy to help!

In general, using condoms during sex reduces your risk to a low risk situation. Since you put the condom on "inside out" the first time, this would not have increased your risk. This is because your partner's bodily fluids did not contact your penis when you put the condom on incorrectly or switched it over. The only fluid inside the condom at the time would have been your own fluids if any were present, and you cannot give HIV to yourself.

I hope this helps!

Please let us know if you have any further questions.

Best,

Caroline
