Patient: Hi I take truvada as prep, today I had my condom broken should I go to emergency room to take pep

Doctor: Hello,Thanks for the query to ATD for an opinion,If you have been on Truvada for PREP and have had a condom misa dventure during a sexual encounter. If the HIV status of your partner is unknown and even though you have been on Truvada, just taking TRUVADA may not keep you from getting HIV-1.You must continue using safer sex practices while you are taking TRUVADA to reduce your risk of getting HIV-1.To further reduce your risk of getting HIV-1:Get tested for other sexually transmitted infections. Other infections make it easier for HIV-1 to infect you.Hence, it is suggested that it would be wise to undertake a post exposure prophylaxis if the HIV status of your partner is confirmed.I hope i have answered your query,Wishing you safe sexual practices,Regards
