Question about PEP (2nd post)

Aug 18, 2011

Hi Dr.Bob,

This is my second time writing to you since I did not get a response the first time.

Would you recommend PEP for the following scenario: Condom breakage during protected intercourse with a CSW/escort

Provided that: The male client is single, not sexually active and HIV negative and the female CSW/escort is of unknown status.

Thanks for your help,


Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello, Dan.

See link below for a similar scenario. My advice remains the same.
