Hiv from paper towel ?
Apr 16, 2010
Please help me doctor, i'm so scared. After mutual masturbation, i used a paper towel with a rest of sperm from my hiv+ friend to clean my penis , also the urethra area. He used it approximately 10 minutes before, but could still have been a bit wet. The doctor prescribed my just truvada as pep.
1. how would you evaluate my risk? 2. is only truvada enough for pep?
thanks so much doctor
Response from Dr. Frascino
1. Your HIV-acquisition risk is negligible. I would not have recommended PEP.
