Do I Need PEP - Only 12 Hours To Go !!!

Dec 23, 2009

Hi Doc,

Just a yes or no - Do I need PEP?

Exposure - a 45 minute long blowjob from a hooker (very high probability of being HIV positive as she wanted to have sex without a condom). It was rough with deep throating and my penis and urethral opening were sore for a day after.

If PEP not warranted, is an HIV test warranted at 3 months?

Response from Dr. Frascino


PEP would not be warranted for a 45-minute session of penis-tonsil hockey with a high-risk hooker. An HIV-antibody test at the three-month mark would be recommended.

Good luck. Happy Holidays.

Dr. Bob
