First time bottomed and scared

Hi everyone,

In short, I got drunk over the weekend and was bare backed. I'm petrified about HIV! Obviously, I plan on seeing a doctor asap, but I'm really hoping to get responses from members here about anything else I should do.

Thanks,
Adam

You have 72 hours to reach a clinic and ask for PEP, which is a cocktail of drugs you have to take for 28 days to ensure you don't get HIV at all. It's only effective for HIV, you still might get syphilis and hepatitis, but those are treatable. Go do it now, because the longer you wait, the less effective it is.

If you let it get past the 72 hours threshold, there's no guarantee you'll be protected, and some places (at least here in Brazil) won't even bother to spend the public investment to give you the drugs. Act now, you won't be shamed, everyone there is prepared to treat you appropriately, and you'll be thankful after you're done with the treatment and get a clean bill of health.
