    I had unprotected sex with a girl 4 or 5 times on July 31st. She confessed 4 days later she was born with hiv. I went to the hospital after she told me and they gave me pep.

    I stopped taking the pep on September 9th and went to get a hiv rapid antibody test on September 11th. It was negative. Would the meds I was taking effect my results from being negative or positive? I am really worried and stressed about this and been losing sleep since this happened

    I was taking truvada norvir and reyataz. I had the rapid antibody test where they take blood from your finger. I am really nervous and scared about this. Someone PLEASE HELP
