PEP treatment

Sep 11, 2012

Hi Doc

Was recently involved in insertive anal sex and the condom broke. I ejaculated into her. I don't know her status although she said she's HIV negative. I know my status is negative coz I'm a regular tester and tested negative before taking PEP after 24 hours. I wanted to know that if I had unprotected sex would I be at risk to infect my partner if it happens that I contacted HIV? And after how long can I have intercourse after using PEP treatment?

Response from Dr. Hightow-Weidman

Hello there- I would suggest waiting 4 weeks till you can take your post-PEP test before engaging in unprotected sex.
