pep & fatherhood

Aug 1, 2004

Is it safe to try to conceive a child after having received PEP (if the person is HIV-negative)? I've heard there is too much genetic damage to the sperm to have a child safely.

Response from Dr. Frascino


Not sure where you heard that, but you certainly didn't hear it here!

Yes, it's safe. Now go make a baby!

Good luck!

Dr. Bob

Oh no, not this girl AGAIN!
just get tested
