I had protected anal sex but I have this tear around my anus. What do I need to do to keep from getting HIV or an infection.?

Stay protected: I take it that you mean by the word protected that you are using condom. It gives you decent but not complete level protection against hiv. Anal tear however is likely to get infected by stool bacteria. Would see a doctor for evaluation and antibiotics. Cannot rule out that what you call a tear is actually herpes ulcers from earlier exposure that is just deactivating on you now. ...Read more

Recently had unprotected anal sex. 4 days later I have a small tear or cut on my anus. It doesn't itch but is sore when I wipe. Could this be herpes?

Herpes or anal fissures? 2 tears on anus. No other sores and no anal sex. Terrified I contracted an std after a one night stand 8 mths ago. Scared!

Herpes unlikely: Herpes can mimic anal fissure or "tear", but usually it does not. If you had acquired herpes during the exposure 8 months ago, you probably would have had typical blisters, sores, etc at the site (s) of exposure, i.e. vaginal opening or labia. But the only way to know for sure is to see a doctor. Do it ASAP, before the fissures start to heal, for accurate HSV testing if s/he recommends it. ...Read more
