Two months ago I had two times protected vaginal intercourse with different prostitutes. The condom was well used. Now what I'm asking is if these relations should still be considered at risk for HIV?

Thank you.

Good Morning Skin2skin,

As long as you received no sexual fluids from the woman's body into your body, there is not a way to become infected with HIV. When you say condoms were well used, I'm hoping that means that you used the condom from the beginning of the event to the very end. We like to say condoms can prevent STIs as long as they are used effectively and consistently.

Dharma

(Body fluid) You mean no fluid went into my urethra or the pores of my scrotum let's say?

I mean that HIV infection only occurs when you get the vaginal secretions of the woman inside your penis or any openings in your body. Pores are not a way for HIV to enter the bloodstream.

I hope this helps. :D
