If you think you may have had a possible HIV exposure, it is important to star PEP therapy as soon as possible to limit the risk of transmission. It will also be important to get serial testing for HIV to see if you contracted the virus. So if you do think it was possible your partner had HIV, I would recommend going to the ER to be prescribed preventive medication to limit your risk.

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.
