Dear doctor,
I live in London with my partner but 10 days ago I did a terrible mistake: I got drunk and I had sex with a 22 years old woman from Puerto Rico. I kissed her extensively, I did use my condom during the penetration but I did not eventually have any orgasm. However I got in touch with her fluids during fingering. She said she was "clean" but she also said so far she had sex with 7 different men. I only got concerned a few days later when I got to know the HIV rate in Puerto Rico.

Should I get HIV tested? Also, meanwhile is it safe to have sex with my partner?

Welcome to e health forum.

Since you had used a condom during penetrative intercourse, the risk of any possible infection would be very less. The risk of infection via contact with genital secretions (via fingering) is also very less.

You can definitely get checked up for STDs, which can help you clear your doubts, and you should definitely use protection in the mean time to avoid transmission of any undiagnosed communicable infections.

I hope this helps.
