PEP between exposure

Aug 21, 2009

He i had a first exposure with HIV posite partner and i was put on PEP but during the treatment i had other comdom slip again. shuold i continue with the treatment?

Response from Dr. Young

Hi and thanks for your post.

Yes, you should continue on your previously prescribed PEP. The additional question relates to how long you should stay on PEP-- I'd generally advise staying on PEP for 4 weeks following your last (or in this case, second) exposure.

Be well, BY
