If it has been less than 72 hours since  your possible exposure to HIV, you can take PEP or Post Exposure Prophylaxis, a pill taken for 28 days that is almost 100% effective against HIV.
Act now because every hour counts. 

You will not know if you have contracted HIV, because of the window period, the one to three months needed for an HIV test to detect if you have HIV.
