Pep is recommended

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to Healthcare-Magic
Greetings of the day


Let's analyse the risk of exposure.

Compared to vaginal sex, anal sex is high risk. As there had been break in condom , you have been exposed to significant risk. Also as the HIV status of hooker Is not known, it's advisable and recommended to go for pep at the earliest.

Take care

Brief Answer:
Pep is definitely indicated

Detailed Answer:

If you have ejaculated outside the risk of transmission of infection from you to hooker is less.
But you have been potentially been exposed to unprotected exposure to anal secretion.
Antibiotics are only prophylaxis against other std.

In view of your exposure, you definitely need PEP. It is available at nearest Government Medical college hospital.

Take care

Brief Answer:
PEP commonest side effect is gastritis

Detailed Answer:


Dear Bro
There is nothing to be tensed about. Pep taken for 4 weeks is safe. Gastritis is most commonest side effect. It can be avoided if taken after meals.
Smoking or drinking will aggravate the side effects.

Do get back to me if you need any further assistance, will be glad to assist you.

Take care
