Hi, I am a male and recently had receptive anal intercourse with a another male. The sex was supposed to be protected with using condom, but it slipped in the middle of the act, and there was a 10 second period in which there was no condom at all. I stopped immediately and had him withdrew before ejaculation and went to emergency room for treatment, I received the 1st dose of PEP within 3 hours with 3 pills, i think they are 2 kaletra and 1 truvada.. However, the PEP dosage that I received for the next two days was only 1 truvada and 1 kaletra (200/50). Later, my primary provider told me that the truvada was precribed at the right dosage, but the kaletra was underdose. I was shocked and scared at the same time. I immediately took 2-4 kaletra's on day 3. I wonder if taking 1 truvada and 1 kaletra (200/50) for the the second and third day will affect the effectiveness of the PEP, consider it was within the 72 hour critical period.
