PEP must be started within 72 hours of a possible exposure. I'm afraid that you are long past that window period. I can't imagine why the doctor would give it to you as its efficacy at this point is zero.
Many HIV specialists now consider testing at 6 weeks with a 4th generation DUO to be conclusive.......but many still go by international guidelines of 12 week testing for conclusive results. Consult the doctor or clinic where you are tested for their guidelines.
I wish you the very best.
