Risk of transmission while on PEP

Aug 13, 2008

NY HIV+ partner's condom broke while he was inside of me. He had just cum, and when he pulled out, the tear looked pretty big. I've been on PEP for 27 days - Truvada and Reyetaz. Do I need to restart PEP now? What is my risk of transmission?

Response from Dr. Young

Thank you for your post.

There's no clear data on this kind of situation, but the prudent thing to do would be to continue your PEP for an additional 4 weeks.

Best of luck, BY

syphilis, one or three injections?
Is it possible
