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.
