Sex during / post PEP
May 17, 2006

My partner is taking PEP. How safe is sex during PEP treatment or post PEP?

Response from Dr. Young

I'm sorry to be blunt, but if your partner had a significant enough HIV exposure to warrant taking PEP that means that he could be infected. Why risk it?

I would operate (so to speak), therefore, under the assumption that he has HIV; the use of condoms would be recommended. BY
