Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

The risk of HIV from conom break vaginal sex is about one in 1000 such incidents.

PEP further reduces your risk by at least 10 times.

So it becomes about one in 10000 cases.

Extremely low risk.

HIV antibody 4th generation test can be taken 8 weeks after exposure.

The sensitivity of detection is about 99% by then.

HIV PCR test to detect viral elements can be combined as well to make it almost 100% accurate at the end of 8 weeks.

Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
