Greetings. Thank you for your questions.

First and foremost, we truly understand your concerns regarding your symptoms and other health problems you might be facing. For your information, PEP works by stopping the virus from replicating after recent exposure. The cells originally infected with HIV will die naturally within a short period of time, reducing the likelihood for HIV to establish itself in the body.

From your complaints, I would recommend you to talk to a doctor at the hospital for post exposure prophylaxis if it is a high risk sexual activities because the status of HIV in the other partner is unknown. You would need to meet their criteria before starting the treatment and you’ll need to start it within 72 hours or sooner than that after being esposed.

The following answers regarding your current queries are just general descriptions. In order for you to know more in detail, we greatly suggest that you refer this to your nearest medical doctor.
