Q and A


Will PEP work for a second time?

I had unprotected sex with a sex partner, then I was on PEP (Reydin) and completed my course on 1st April 2022.

Then, after 4 days, on the 6th April 2022, I then paid a woman to have sex with me who assured me that she was HIV negative. The following day I asked her to test with me and she tested positive and I tested negative.

She didn’t seem worried by her HIV + status. Then I went to my medical doctor who put me on Acriptega (TLD). What are my chances to remain safe?



How is this women doing? Do you know if she has access to treatment and support?

No one has the right to make another person take an HIV test. This is unethical and could be seen as abuse.

    Hi Ivan, what symptoms are you experiencing? Have you been experiencing these since starting PEP?

    Hi Thalia, while you are on PEP there is no risk to you. This is because the PEP in your body can act as PrEP. How long has your partner being on ARVs? It is possible that their viral load is already suppressed.

    You can finish your course of PEP when you were originally expecting to.
