I have just had sex with a chinese "massage" prostitute for about a week ago, I used condom but I'm still afraid of the risk concerning hiv. The reason why i'm afraid is because I had an open pimple about 1 cm up from the root of penis from the day before,I'm pretty sure I got it as a result of shaving a few days earlier. I dont think the condom covered the place where I had the open pimple which is the reason of why I'm very concerned now.
if by chance that girl had hiv, is it possible to get hiv like this? and what is the chance? I will also mention that I have never had any STD from before, and this is the second time that I've ever had sex with one of those type of girl(and probably the last).
I will of course go take a bloodtest after 8 weeks, but I can't stop worrying.
The chances of contracting HIV or any STI are there if that girl is suffering from any infection. If the girl is healthy, the chances are nil. As you do not have any symptoms other than the pimple which you developed before sex, it is unlikely that you have contracted any infection.
If you are worried about any infection, it is advisable to undergo all routine tests for common infections transmitted by sexual intercourse including HIV. Please see your doctor who will examine you and administer routine tests to exclude syphilis, gonorrhea, Chlamydia and HIV. Thank you.
