Taking HIV meds for 4 weeks starting promptly after a sexual exposure may decrease the risk of transmission to the exposed uninfected partner. The risk for transmission in that setting is much lower if the HIV+ partner is on effective HIV medication. Often breastfeeding would be discouraged if a significant exposure took place if there is a clear alternative available-recommend discussing with your pediatrician if available. KH
