    Good morning. What your doctor gave you was post exposure prophylaxis. This should be taken within 72hrs of exposure to be effective. It reduces your chances of contracting the virus. Sorry but I can't say for sure if it will work. You have to wait 3months to have a repeat HIV test. Please always practice safe sex with the use of condoms to prevent unwanted pregnancies and sexually transmitted infections. Good luck

    Hello. The easiest you can take the test is 3months after the exposure to allow time for the window period of the virus to pass. 3wks after exposure is too early for the test. I understand how you feel though. Let's cross our fingers.

    can someone have unprotected sex with an hiv posetive person and didn't catch the virus?

    Hello. Yes it is possible to have unprotected sex with a person living with HIV and not get infected. But with repeated unprotected sex, the chance increases.
