Thanks for all the information and support you give to the general public. I have a question but before i would like to say that i already know what to do afterwards (test to ease my mind or realize if i contracted the virus), but i need to ease my mind about this event in order to cope with the chance i might be HIV positive. I was in Bangkok, and went to a Go Go bar, i took a girl out and had vaginal sex with her (with condom on). After a while the condom broke, i realized it after maybe 30 seconds and we stopped. I told her and she rushed into the bathroom to wash herself, and after her i also did, and urinated. The condom broke on the side, however i dont know if the tip was exposed at certain moment. I asked her she said she doesn't have HIV (i assumed either she doesnt know or didnt want to tell me) I freaked out and i went to hospital, they put me on PEP (truvada and isentress), which i have been taking since. Today is my last dose of it, so my questions are the following:
1. How much is my real risk of having contracted HIV for this kind of exposure? I need an ease of mind to reduce all my anxiety caused by this event since the Dr. in the hospital in Thailand said i had 15% chance. A Dr. friend of mine told me 0.3-0.5% risk and also recomended me PEP, which i took after 48 to 52 hours.
2. After I finish my treatment, how long can i go test to get a reliable result? Dr. in Thailand recomended me to test after 40 days of exposure.
3. I haven't had any symptoms such as fever, rash, or swollen lymph nodes. No muscle pain no fatigue. I do have a runny nose (mild) and a little phlegm in my throat. Is it possible that those are ARS? (it has been now 4 weeks and 3 days after exposure).
Thank you very much in advance for the time and effort!.
