Anal bleeding on comdom

Hi everyone,

I did a huge mistake in my life and I am currently terried. I just had a protected sex with an unknown man. He claimed to be clean and hiv negative, who knows. After the sex and he left, i found out that my anus was bleeding and when looked at the condom, it had traces of my blood on it. He didn’t come inside me but I am still so terrified. The condom didn’t break, it stayed on the whole time. I tested it and there was no leaking. This is the first time I saw a lot of blood came out of my anus. I am extremely terrified. Could anyone please help me explain what are the chances of me getting HIV or STD if say he had it? Before he penetrated, he played with it, so I don’t know if it was already bleeding and that he could have touched the tip of his penis in the scratched areas. Please help me.. what are the chances of me getting HIV if He was HIV positive? Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Protected Sex is not a Risk for HIV.

Sexually, only unprotected penetrative anal or vaginal is a risk for HIV.

Your situation is straight forward - No Risk

Move on...!

As papelguy stated, that you used a condom means you didn't have a risk.  The only way people get HIV is from unprotected vaginal or anal penetrating sex or sharing of IV drug needles.  You had protected sex with the key word being protected so zero risk from this event.

You can't get HIV from your own blood.

Thank you for the answers. That is relieving. However, could the precum got into my body through the bleeding anus when he touched it? No penetration happened yet

This answers all of your HIV questions, and if you can think of any more just reread about the 3. You had zero risk therefore  testing is irrelevant to your situation because you had zero risk. HIV is a fragile virus, which is instantly inactivated in air and also in saliva which means it is effectively dead so it can't infect from touching, external rubbing or oral activities. It doesn't matter if you and they were actively bleeding or had cuts at the time either because the HIV is effectively dead.  
Only 3 adult risks are the following:
1. unprotected penetrating vaginal with a penis
2. unprotected penetrating anal sex with a penis
3. sharing needles that you inject with.
The only way to get HIV is if you did one of the 3. The situation you describe is a long way from any of these 3.
Even with blood, lactation, cuts, rashes, burns, etc the air or the saliva does not allow inactivated virus to infect from touching, external rubbing or oral activities. Doctors have calculated the risk from what you describe to be less than that of being hit by a meteor, therefore no one will get HIV from what you did in the next 40 years of your life either. The above HIV science is 40 years old and very well established, so no detail that you can add to your encounter will change it from zero risk.
This is very informative. Thank you very much. Per your answers, if the risk is zero, I guess don’t need to get tested. But is do you think it is still recommended to do so just a precaution? Or do you still think it’s pointless to do testing based on my situation?
You have been told clearly that you do not need to test, there was absolutely no risk involved in your situation. You used a condom and that ensured your saftey, there is no point in asking again whether you need to test,  it is time for you to accept the advice offered to you and put this behind to move along.

Always use condoms correctly and consistently to stay away from HIV and other STDs.
