Can I do something after probably been infected?

I had sex today with a hooker and the condom broke, I dunno if I got infected but if I did is there something I can do with household or pharmacy items to prevent getting infection? the same way as an antiretroviral method would?

You can try and get emergency PEP. It generally works best when taken within 72 hours. It has a rough success rate of 70%.
