follow up on Herpes and side effects of Viraday:New Developments
Feb 24, 2011

Hi Keith, Thanks for your answer to my previous question.It sure put my worries to rest for the meanwhile.However,last night(day 18th after the suspected exposure)I've developed a sore throat and some nasal blockage(at times running nose).Do I need to get worried??I haven't missed a single dose of my PEP.Also on the night of the exposure the condom broke just during my second thrust/attempt of penetrating the vagina.I immediately withdrew the penis.I did not indulge in any further sexual contact with the sex worker after that.There was no ejaculation. Thanks a lot for answering my queries.Here in India,I've hardly found people to share my concerns.Thanks again.

Response from Dr. Henry

Your throat complaints would unlikely be due to your HIV regimen-chances to become HIV infected from 2nd condom break would likely be considerably less if you are already taking antiretrovirals. KH
