Sex during PEP treatment

Aug 14, 2010

I am currently on PEP treatment after I had unprotected sex on two consecutve days and end up realizing she was HIV positive when I sugguested we go for a test. I took my 1st AZT on the 68th hours. I would like to know if is it advisable to have protected sex during the time I am taking my PEP treatments.

Response from Dr. Young


You are taking a medication to prevent primary HIV infection because you might have been exposed and you're asking if it's ok to have unprotected sex?

The answer is yes, it's advisable to have protected sex; whether or not your taking a PEP regimen.
