Broken Condom Hiv
Hiv infection is caused by a retrovirus....This retrovirus binds to CD4 cells (for the most part). You may detect the virus by several different methods. An elisa test (enzyme linked immunosorbent assay). You may also detect it by doing a test referred to as a western blot (a gel protein electrophoresis). Thirdly by pcr (polymerase chain reaction) which ...Read more
Chance of HIV infection through single, brief, and protected vaginal intercourse with new partner with unknown status? Condom didn't break or slip
I worry about getting hiv,because i had intercourse with street prostitute in cambodia.can hiv pass thru latex condom?does latex condom have a hole?
Infection unlikely: Condoms offer very good protection in this situation. They will work as long as they don't slip off. Nothing is risk-free, and the situation itself is quite dangerous -- you may meet some people you might be better off not knowing. Everyone explores, but my hope for you is that you find a real, loving relationship in which the physical side enhances a meaningful emotional tie. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
NO: If sperm could go though an unbroken condom they would not be very effective for contraception. Condoms are designed to not only protect against pregnancy but also sexually-transmitted viral and bacterial infections and those microbes are much smaller than sperm. That said, condoms don't work 100% of the time as sometimes they break and occasionally sperm leak out from the base. ...Read more

IWouldn'tWorryToMuch: That's "fellatio," buddy! Sounds Eye-talian, so i like it. "Blowjob" is so...so ghetto...Anyways, our good friends at the CDC (the hot shots with all the supposed answers) say 97 percent of people develop detectable HIV antibodies within the first three months after exposure whereas the RNA test can find the little buggers within 2 weeks. But I'd wait another 2 weeks for viral load to increase. ...Read more

Condom used, didn't break, didn't ejaculate, condom was on when went in no sex without condom on at all, chances from pre cum leaking out?
No risk: HIV is virtually 100% prevented by correct and consistent condom use for vaginal or anal sex. Contrary to popular beliefs, hepatitis C isn't sexually transmitted at all, except in gay men through traumatic (potentially bloody) rectal sexual practices. Heterosexual partners of persons with HCV are at no increased risk at all. Thus, little or no risk even without condoms, zero risk with them. ...Read more
