Hi Dr Handsfield,
I took a course of PEP during 28 days after possible hiv exposure.
During those 28 days i had sex with my girlfriend with a condom.
I remember 1 time the condom fell off during the intercourse, but we inmediately stopped.
My question is :
Is the viral load high during PEP?
Does taking the PEP tablets in those 28 days make me less transmittable to my girlfriend?
What are the chances ?
PS : 6 weeks after PEP i took a combo test and its negative, alot of specialists call this conclusive.
So i'm only afraid that IF i was infected before the PEP, i could infect my girlfriend DURING PEP?
