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?
Please to not forget a positive rating and avoid poor/bad rating.
Bonus is highly appreciated.
Waiting for your response.

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.
Doctor: Dr.Anil, Doctor replied 1 year 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?
Doctor: Dr.Anil, Doctor replied 1 year 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.
