unprotected encounter

Jun 27, 2013

Yesterday I had unprotected anal intercourse. I found out the guy is positive. I do remeber him pulling out and cumming, but not on me. The entire secession did not last long. I cleaned up after and when he left i douced. I'm worried that I maybe infected from his precum. Im thinking of going on PEP tomorrow. Please give me your input.

Response from Dr. Hightow-Weidman

Hi there- This would be considered a situation where I would indeed recommend PEP. The early you take it the better and certainly within 48-72 hours is best. HIV can be transmitted by precum and being the bottom is riskier than being the top. Hope this helps. Take care, LHW
