Two weeks ago I had a scare. I had vaginal intercourse with a girl from the bar and the condom broke and I removed immediately. I asked her about her status and she stated clean. There was some blood on the bed from her after. I started PEP within 24 hours from the clinic, they gave me Tenofovir, Emtricitabine, Lamivudine one pill each daily. Is this a good drug regime? Two weeks later, I started to feel a sore throat or night sweats. What are the odds of being infected? Is this low risk?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
PEP (post-exposure prophylaxis) is good. A sore throat is very common at this time. You can go to ENT specialist. You can have tablet Zerodol SP (Aceclofenac, Serratiopeptidase, and Paracetamol) two times a day after food for three to five days, tablet TAXIM O (Cefixime) 200 two times a day after food for three to five days. Tantum (Benzydamine) liquid gargle before meals two times. You will be all right, as such you go for a test fourth generation CMIA kit test for HIV on the 28th day. If it comes negative, means no HIV is there. PEP to be taken for 28 days.
