Hello doctor young,thank you for the work your rendering,am now three months after exposure and two months after pep,I had a tested for antibodies and the results are question is have pep extended the window period.thank you. .

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

In brief, no. PEP doesn't affect the window period or the timing of HIV testing.

A negative test three months after exposure is definitive.

Be well, BY
