PEP or No PEP??

Apr 21, 2012

After a night of drinking. I made a mistake and ended up having unprotected sex with two guys who are drug users? In addition, I performed oral sex, rimming and fisting on one guy. I have until tomorrow to decide whether I should do PEP or not. What are your thoughts on the Risk Factor??

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

Not knowing all the specifics, but while your oral sex alone might not be sufficiently risky to justify PEP, the unprotected sex with two others probably is.

I'd recommend getting a health evaluation (and probably, PEP) within 72 hours of your exposure.
