HIV Prevention and Testing > How Can I Prevent HIV?

Start 2-1-1 prep on Wednesday, missed dose saturday

(1/1)

ZK:
I missed the dose over 12 hours ago, I haven't had any sex since starting prep as what  I arranged did not happen. Can I still continue as normal today or do I have to double dose again?

Jim Allen:
So if I understand correctly the outcome was you started PrEP but had no sex? Missed a dose and are planning on-demand PrEP for the next encounter?

If the above is correct, just start the On-demand PrEP again. So take two pills between 2 and 24 hours before you have sex and take one pill a day for each day afterwards that sex continues, finally followed by a single pill on each of the two days after you last have sex.

Remember to consider condoms and test regularly for HIV and easier to acquire STI's.

ZK:
Yes that is correct, so 2 pills Wednesday then a pill on thursday then I missed fridays but was wondering if I could carry on with my daily dose and still be protected or is it better to just wait and take 2 before my next encounter (which might end up being tonight or tomorrow) lol

Jim Allen:
Hiya,

Tonight or tomorrow, start the On-demand PrEP again.
So 2-1-1.

Best Jim
