Had sex with a girl using a condom. Girl used that same condom to finger me in the butt. Am I at risk for std?

STD risk is related more to the known health status(STD) of the two parties involved and sexual practices rather than the way the condom was twice used. IF you don't know her STD status, then therein lies your risk. ...Read more

Docs, wanted to know if I can get pregnant if we used a condom and the pull out method on my safe period after ovulation?

If a condom really is used previously by an HIV infected person, and not rinsed or cleaned, HIV probably will survive for at least several hours and perhap for days. Nobody has known to ever catch HIV because of such an exposure, but I cannot say there is no risk. If you remain concerned, get tested for HIV after a few weeks. ...Read more
