Question

Can PEP also work as PrEP?

I am on day 24 of pep. My gf is hiv positive and I am a man.

Will i be at risk if i have unprotected sex today on day 24?

Answer

Hi

PEP can also work at PrEP for some of the time you are taking the PEP.

This only works if the PEP includes both the meds used for PrEP.

These are tenofovir and either emtricitabine (FTC) or lamivudine (3TC).

Please see the links below for more detail about PrEP.

If your girlfriend is taking HIV meds and has an undetectable viral load, then this also stops the risk of transmission. Undetectable = untransmittible (U=U).
