PREP on demand: 2 pills or just one after 24h?
« on: September 13, 2022, 07:10:01 pm »
I'm taking PREP on demand as I only have sexual activity once a month (mostly BJ, both receptive and insertive).

I was suppose to meet a guy today but I won't see him until tomorrow.

So I took the 2 pills 7pm today (3 hours before my date), but I'm prob meeting this guy 10pm tomorrow. My question is: should I took 2 pills again when I reach 24h mark tomorrow (and didn't have any sexual activity)? Or just one?

Sorry if my question is on the wrong section (or I should reply in the other thread I made?). I don't fully understand the forum yet.

Take a single pill 24 hours after you took the double dose, so that would be 7 pm tomorrow and then continue taking PrEP daily until you have had two sex-free days.
