Customer Question

Doctor, I had protected sex with a CSW twice in a span of an hour and unprotected oral sex. After intercourse I noticed that midway down my shaft where the circumcision marks are there was a very small (about 3 mm) sore. I have been diagnosed with hsv, and I am concerned now that I may be at risk for hiv. Although this portion was covered with a condom, do I have risk of catching Hiv? I am afraid either I was at risk during oral unprotected sex and also through vaginal fluid which could have gotten onto this sore when I was taking off the condom. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts...

Doctor, just to clarify the sore was on the shaft of my penis...i am worried the vaginal fluid may have touched this sore while I was taking the condom addition to the unprotected oral sex...

No you do not need to be concerned.The sore on shaft is even less concerning than on the glans.Do not worry.
