As far as the other person is not a sex worker and the condom broke at the end the chances are less so no worries, just get a test after 4 weeks post exposure for further reassurance.

Hi oka, thanks! I already got the post’s exposure meds and started them within 24h so thanks for reassuring. And no , no sex worker but just someone I don’t know a typical one night stand. For PEP as it makes me nauseous can I take something against that? And I was told to take 3 tablets everyday, the same time for 28 days

Yes, you are on teh right track, you can take ginger tea or antacid like gaviscon or antinausea available OTC in the pharmavy near you.
