PrEP therapy is effective only if the patient takes the medication according to the treatment regimen prescribed by the doctor. Also, it is important to remember that taking PrEP does not protect you from other sexually transmitted infections, and even if you are taking PrEP, you must use a condom during sex.
If a high-risk contact did occur, and you did not have time to protect yourself with either a condom or PrEP, and no more than 72 hours have passed since the contact, the so-called post-exposure prophylaxis can help you avoid the infection.
PEP should be taken exactly as directed and for 28 days continuously. Skipping even one day of taking PEP reduces the likelihood of successful therapy. Do not double your dose if you miss one day. If you miss a dose and remember about it less than 24 hours later, take your next dose as soon as you remember.
