Detailed Question:

Dear Sir/Madam, 

I'm 19. I had protected sex with a prostitute some days back. We did not have oral sex. But after taking off the condom she wiped my penis with a handkerchief, which would have contained semen from other customers. I am afraid of the condom quality too. 

Also i have a habit of biting my fingers nails due to which I have numerous cuts on my fingers near my nails. While having sex I was holding the girl's bums and i'm afraid my fingers were exposed to the inner lining of her bums. 

I'm afraid I may have caught HIV and other Sexually Transmitted Diseases. Please suggest me which all tests I need to take apart from 

  • HIV
  • Chlamydia 
  • Gonorrhoea 
  • Syphilis 
  • Genital Herpes

Do I also have to go for Hepatitis A,B,C , Human papillomavirus infection or any other STI? Please help as i'm really depressed.

Getting yourself tested for all the tests you mentioned is a good idea to start with. However, you must remember that HIV and some illnesses can manifest years after the exposure. You can consult again with the reports so that a preventive medicine can be prescribed to safeguard you.

The chances of your finger cuts getting HIV are depending on how deep the cut was. A superficial cut that did not bleed at the time or a cut that had intact new skin formed will not allow HIV to pass through even though there was anal contact. To put your fears to rest you can perform the testing, which will clarify any of these fears you have.

There are some general safety points to keep in mind when having sex with strangers or prostitutes.
  1. Always use a condom. Use double condom protection if required
  2. Ideally, you should completely avoid sex with prostitutes for your own safety, because condoms are not always effective.
  3. Always get yourself tested for STD tests - HIV Testchlamydia, Herpes etc.
