Additional HIV exposures.

Aug 15, 2013

20 days after starting PEP with my partiner who is negative, we had additional HIV exposure for a few seconds although i did not ejaculate on her. Should we extend PEP period?

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

If you had a sufficiently risky exposure (and I'm not sure that what you describe is), then, yes I would view this as a new HIV exposure and recommend 28 days of PEP.

I'd suggest speaking to your care provider about the specifics and for their advice.

Hope that helps. BY

treatment, what tests
Low CD4 and no symptoms
