I had unprotected vaginal sex with a woman 17 hours ago, and I am worried if I may have contracted HIV. I say this because I have learned that the woman I had sex with has multiple sexual partners and I am anxious she may have HIV. I am not in a position to ask her if she has HIV, and even if I do, I am pretty sure she will not tell me the truth, or worse still, she may not even know it herself. My question is, should I undergo a PEP (post-exposure prophylaxis) course? If yes, then what are the side effects that I will have to contend with? Also, are there any risks (short or long term) associated with a PEP course? I am very anxious and would be extremely thankful if you could help me.
