pep and test

May 31, 2013

Good day Dr,althogh I took my pep 4 days after exposure,can the 3 month test period be reliable in my case? And what are the symptoms of hiv in the window period.Thanks doctor for responding promtly to all my prev. Questions.

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there,

The 90 day window still stands. However, PEP is only effective until 72 hours. I am not sure why someone prescribed it to you. Unfortunately, by day four it's no longer effective as preventing the transmission of HIV.

In health,
