PEP and testing for G-Man
      06/15/04 11:56 PM

G-Man -

I have lifted a quote of yours from another post:

"If you are actually infected the disease will start replicating immediately and that is where ARS comes from in the 2 to 6 week range. The only things that can delay replication is PEP or being under treatment like chemotherapy."

I underwent a 28 day PEP treatment following a high-risk exposure. My doctor, Dr. Bob, and the MAssachusetts HIV Hotline all stated that the PEP program would NOT alter testing guidelines or windows. In fact, if the PEP fails to prevent infection (as in Dr. Bob's case), the individual is likely to experience a normal ARS.

What do you think?
