Response from Dr. Young
Your PEP treatment duration should reflect your most recent exposure- so an additional 28 days makes sense.
However, be mindful that if you do have repeated at-risk exposures you might consider the merits going on pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), if available in your country.
For more information about PrEP, check out our Fact Sheet from AIDS InfoNet.org.
