Side effects of Kaletra and Combivir
Jul 14, 2013
Hi Doctor, I had unprotected oral sex and protected vaginal sex but condom broke. I am on PEP. I started after around 60 hrs of exposure. 1. What is my risk of getting HIV. 2. What are the permanent side effects of Kaletra and Combivir combination If i am completing it for 28 days.
Response from Dr. Young
Hello and thanks for posting.
The risk of acquiring HIV from a single oral or vaginal sex exposure is pretty low, less than 1%.
PEP, if adhered to, is very effective in preventing HIV.
There are few, if any long-term side effects of taking PEP regimens; though short term side effects can certainly be observed.
I hope that's helpful, BY
