Doctor :   hi
Doctor :   how can i help you
User :   Dear Doctor,
I am a 32 year old man. 7 days a go I had an unprotected one-nightstand intercourse with a female I donĂ¢??t know. In the next morning I acknowledged what I have done and got worried about getting any of the STD viruses including HIV. So first thing I did I went to the drug store and bought the antibiotic Zithromax and took the recommended dose ( 2 grams one time) without any symptom regardless. I still donĂ¢??t have any symptom but my questions are: Q: Would that dose helped if in fact I caught some virus? Or I have to take it when the symptoms appear?
Q: It had been 7 days and no any symptoms, could symptoms show after?
Q: Can I take another dose in few days just to be in the safe said?
Q: Am waiting after the 10th day to do the PCR HIV test. Is that test as accurate as the other 28 days test and 90 days test?
Q: Any other advice you can give me?
Doctor :   ok, i need little history
Doctor :   was the partner has multiple partner
