PEP or no PEP

Jun 12, 2013

I had unprotected sex with a person that may be HIV+. Male to male, me on top. This lasted for about 3-5min. I did not ejaculate in this person. Should I consider taking PEP?

Response from Dr. Young

Hi and thanks for posting.

While being an insertive (top) sexual partner is of lower risk than the receptive (bottom) partner, there's still potential HIV risks.

If it's still within 72 hours of exposure, I'd consider using PEP. BY
