Customer Question
Hi I'm ***** *****...

Hi I'm ***** *****, and i recently had unprotected sex with a friend. We had both vaginal and anal, she told me that she has been with someone else. And on yesterday she woke up with a bad virus early in the AM, a fever, vomiting and diarrea. Should I be worried and consult my PCP for PEP since I'm in the 72 hour window. She said she is sure it isn't HIV she get tested every 6 months. But holding info about someone that I'm not sure if their status is scaring me.

Hello from JustAnswer,

If it was unprotected sex, yes it is necessary to consult a PCP, and if her status is not known, then it is good to start on PEP, once started early the effect of PEP is good, so don't worry.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
