Help, condom broke
Oct 23, 2006
I'm HIV pos and while having sex with my partner the condom broke. I din't ejaculate but did pre cum. Would it be safe for him to take my meds this one time just incase?
Response from Dr. Young
Thanks for your post.
I generally never recommend that anyone take medicines, especially HIV meds, without a treaters supervision.
While PEP makes a lot of sense and a first quick dose is often done in this circumstance, an effective PEP regimen should last 4 weeks.
Talk to your (or your partner's) healthcare provider ASAP to get on continuous medications. BY
