I am positive and my wife is negative. We were having sex and the condom broke. There was no fluid in it at all. I gave my wife some of my Truvada just in case.

I have also called my DR and I am waiting on him to call me back. How long is recommend for her to take this medcine and when should she follow up with a PCR?

Don't give your wife your medications, even if the condom breaks. Call the doctor and take advice from there.

PEP is generally taken for 28 days and will affect the HIV testing window period, ie you start counting the 3 months AFTER you cease the PEP. PCR testing is not recommended as a diagnostic tool because it produces an unnacceptably high rate of false positives.

   I am wishing your wife the best.  Hopefully she will be alright.  Please update us and let us know how she is doing and also how you are doing.  And please do not put blame on yourself.  It was an accident.  Great Big Hug to you and your wife.   Rachel
