Customer Question
Hi there. I was...

Hi there. I was having an encounter last night and the condom I was using broke. Isn't there some medication I can take within 48 hours to reduce the risk of contracting AIDS or other diseases?

Doctor's Assistant: Is this your first time reaching out for information about this? In general, how would you describe your overall health?

Yes. My health is pretty good. I go to the gym 5 times a week and the doctor said my blood pressure was excellent last time I went

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I've got an allergy to dust, Raynod's syndrome in my hands as well as a little excema. That's about it

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.
