Will gonnorhea reduce effectiveness of PEP

Question

I am on PEP (started at 48-50 hours)... Truvada and Isentress. I think I might have gonorrhea... Would that reduce effectiveness of pep

Answer

Hello and thanks for posting.

There's no reason why gonorrhea (or its treatment) will affect the effectiveness of HIV post-exposure prophylaxis.

If you think you have gonorrhea (or other sexually transmitted infections), I'd strongly suggest speaking to a care provider about your symptoms.
