Answer

CDC recommendations state that all persons evaluated for possible HIV PEP should be evaluated for other exposures and conditions. These include bacterial STIs, traumatic injuries, hepatitis B and hepatitis C infection, and/or pregnancy. The following guidelines are based upon CDC guidelines [29] and interim updates, [30] and should be administered regardless of initial patient testing and whether HIV PEP is administered or not after sexual assault.
