Do I need to get PEP? Please Advise

Yesterday I had protected sex with a csw of unknown status. The problem is that afterwards I looked at the condom and there seemed to be blood on the inside. However, the condom did not break. I also am not sure if it was lambskin or not because I've never used one but hear it can allow the HIV in. I asked the girl and she said that she is negative (not sure to believe it not) and that she got off her period a couple days ago so that might be why blood was present inside. My question is.. Should I get PEP to prevent possible infection? I'm not sure how blood could get through pores in the condom but don't know if it was latex or not.

I dont see how its possible to get blood inside the condom whilst having sex?

Infact charms 99 asked the same question, are you him?

Re: Do I need to get PEP? Please Advise

No I'm not. Maybe it was my own I was just shocked to find blood inside but the condom seemed intact. Not sure how much blood could seep through if there was a hole. Also, would I know if it was a lambskin or latex condom I was using? I didn't put it on myself

Well im guessing your from the US, so i cannot belive they would use lambskin at all. Latex are the most popular and the most common. If their was a hole the condom would fail like a burst balloon and you would have no condom left on your penis, just a rubber ring around the base of your penis.

Re: Do I need to get PEP? Please Advise

npep can have very hard sideeffects...
but if it was really her blood that however managed to get inside the condom you might ask a doctor to get npep.
but what i think is that the condom flipped over when you pulled it of and that the blood was actually outside the condom and you just thought it was inside because the condom was flipped over at the end...

We cannot advise you on that mate. PEP ( i have a sticky at the top of the page ) is a very aggressive drug so you will need to speak with a doctor about this. Personally i think its unlikley to have happened but its your call?

So, did you have any blood on your penis head?

Re: Do I need to get PEP? Please Advise

Then i would say it was on the outside of the condom not inside. If you have blood inside, belive me it just dose not vanish, it will still be on your penis and will only come off with water.

Yes maybe so. Just freaking out a little cause I thought protected sex was pretty close to zero risk..!
