Can a person do a PEP course and then due to another exposure do another course merely 2 months after completing the previous one?

Response from Dr. Frascino


The answer to your question is yes; however, now I have a question for you. Just how unlucky, careless or clueless is the person who needs to be PEPed twice within a few months? I'd say it's time for that person to review the safer-sexual techniques and to check the expiration date on their condoms!

Dr. Bob

negative at 12 weeks.
