I was raped last night and will be going to the ER as soon as I have transportation. In the meantime could you please give me an idea of my std/pregnancy risks?

Here are the details:

I have been on bc pills regularly for several years. I skip the placebo pills so as not to menstruate, but take the others without missing a dose. My last pap exam was in January and it was normal.

He used a condom before entering and did not ejaculate or pre-cum inside me as far as I know (it looked/felt as though he pulled out & came in the condom). Before penetrating me, he used his saliva to wet the condom.

There was no oral or anal involved. He did put his fingers inside me and made me put my hand on his penis.

Thank you for any information. I am most concerned about herpes & HPV, so let me know about those. I guess the saliva/vaginal contact is the most risky thing about what happened?

If you have been on the pill for longer than a month and taking it as directed, there is no reason to worry about a pregnancy risk. And since he used a condom, as well, the risk is further minimized. So, that's not something you need to be concerned with.

And since he did use a condom, the STI risk is also very small. But ultimately, that's only something you can know for sure by getting tested. And since some STIs take a while before they become detectable, you'll want to get tested again in 3 months, just to be safe.

If there is anything else we can do for you, please let us know.

Which STDs could I have been exposed to via his saliva on the condom inside me?

Honestly, saliva is not one to generally carry a lot of STIs that are known to be transferred through it.
