Customer Question

I have been using PEP for the past 2 weeks after I receive a blow job from a possible carrier. I recently read that my chances to get infected are low and I want to ask if I should discontinue the pill.

Hello and thank you for your question. I’d be happy to assist you.

If there is no unprotected anal,vaginal sex then HIV transmission from blow job itself is very less to negligible.

As you had started PEP and there is no risk for HIV transmission then you can stop it.

It's good to get a HIV RNA PCR test before stopping.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.
It’s my pleasure to continue this conversation until you satisfy.
May I help you further?

I had a protected sex after the oral. The side effect of the PEP is too much for me and I would like to stop it.
Expert:  Dr.Anil replied 4 months ago.

Chances of HIV with protected sex and oral sex are very less.

So you can stop it if there was no other exposure.

It's good to get HIV testing also.

However chances are negligible.

Hope this helps.

I was told I have to wait few months to get tested because of the PEP, is that true?
Expert:  Dr.Anil replied 4 months ago.

For ELISA test it is ideal to wait for 6 weeks post exposure for testing and repeat testing at 3 months and 6 months post exposure.
