|Insertive anal - Should I get nPEP
Mar 16, 2014
I had unprotected insertive anal and vaginal sex last night with an anonymous partner while we both were intoxicated. My partner said after sex, in a slurred partially comprehensible speech, that she told me she was HIV positive before sex. I asked her in the morning, and she denied saying that.
Whether or not it was a drunken misinterpretation, or if she was trying to cover up her condition, should I seek nPEP? I am very concerned, as this is my first encounter with someone who may be a carrier. From my knowledge, she may be an IV drug user, but regardless, HIV+ is HIV+ non matter what the person's risk is.

Hello and thanks for posting.
Seems like your could have been exposed. While unprotected sex with a positive person with an undetectable viral load is very low risk (for HIV), your exposure risk is sufficient to warrant considering PEP. Remember that there's only a 72 hour window to get started.
Hope that helps, BY
