May 16, 2009

never do it again!

i had unprotected sex with a CSW for about two minutes Feb. 04 this year. eight weeks later, she had an ECLIA test negative. since i took PEP (Kaletra, lamivudine,zumivudine) for 28 days until March 2. April 30 (eight weeks after PEP, 12 weeks after the exposure), i had ELISA test, negative. am i clear? is the result conclusive?

i'm wondering... need ur professional help

Response from Dr. Frascino


Your negative HIV tests out to three months following a full course of PEP are extremely encouraging. The guidelines suggest for anyone who had an exposure significant enough to warrant a course of PEP that follow-up HIV tests be done six weeks, three months and six months from the date of exposure. You can read more about this in the archives.

Good luck.

Dr. Bob
