Mentioned tablets ((PEP) Forstavir-EM (Emtricitabine and Tenofovir Disoproxil fumarate)) Is good to handle my infection (IF any). Also please explain about test which i need to take after PEP. IS PEP affect my test result after 30 days.

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting from India.

I'd suggest that your risk of getting HIV infection from this exposure was very low.

Adding post-exposure prophylaxis will further decrease the risk.

It's generally recommended that you have HIV testing at 1 and 3 months after the exposure. PEP doesn't change the timing, or sensitivity of testing.

Be well, BY
