Hello Doctor!! Greetings!!! I am...
Hello Doctor!! Greetings!!! I am a 34 year old Asian Male!! On 25/11/2017, I was quite drunk and had protected Insertive Vaginal Intercourse with a Sex Worker!!! I did suck her nipple for about 10 seconds too!! Though protected I was quite insecure about contracting HIV!!! Within 23 hours post exposure,I did carry out a baseline lab test including PCR DNA which c was negative for HIV and I immediately started PEP meds being Truvada and Raltegravir. After a week I got the source tested and she was negative for HIV as per 4th Gen Tests and PCR DNA. I still continued my pep though with a single dose of Truvada for the rest of 21 days.
This is my 1st such encounter though I am sure it is the last one too!!! Just curious and paranoid!!! Is there any possibility of me contracting HIV????
Thanks and Regards.

Since she turned out to be negative and you had protective sex plus you had PEP as well, you have no risk of contracting HIV so nothing at all to worry about and try to overcome your anxiety and rest assured.

Assuming her being on window period, does it pose a risk for me?
HIV and AIDS Expert: Dr Uzair, Doctor replied 7 months ago

Thanks for the reply.

No, still there is negligible risk so no worries.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
