Truvada treatment

Aug 6, 2014

I had a condom break on me with a massage parlour woman. Im not sure how long intercourse lasted while broken. It may have been a minute or two before I discovered it broken. I put a new condom on once I was aware of the break. I went on Truvada about 50 hours later. How long should I stay on this treatment? I have 30 pills and I was told it was a 28 day treatment. Is there any reason to stay on it longer than 28 days?

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

It seems reasonable for you to take and complete the 28 day post-exposure prophylaxis course. There's no reason to take the medication longer than this unless you had a new exposure during the treatment course.
