Truvada effect on P24/PCR
Nov 5, 2017
Hi I started dating someone in August and we had unsafe sex for first two weeks of october. I was the insertive partner and on top of that I am circumcised as well.On 15th oct we went for a casual test and he turned out to be positive and I tested negative. Doctor put me ONLY on Truvada as PEP. The last unsafe sex instance was on 10th oct. I have tested Negative for P24 antigen and PCR DNA test on 27th (17 days post exposure and 12 days into Truvada). I wanted to find out does Truvada effect the results of P24/PCR testing. Considering I only started it 6 days post exposure. I know I need to keep taking truvada and keep testing but just for peace of my mind your input will help.
Response from Dr. Holodniy
Truvada does not effect the results of P24/PCR testing.
