I've got a story about Pattaya and Pep. The information in this thread helped me and I feel now i can contribute to its content. As the previous information and my own experience may help another individuals in the same situation.
I'll be very direct with my story and honest, cause its the details that stressed me the most. I couldn't find the information to guide me
I recently visited Pattaya, i was very tired arriving there. Work had been tough in the lead up. I was only there 3 days when this incident occurred. I had been on a diving trip for over 12 hours and a bit pissed off with the duration. I got back to my hotel and was 50/50 on just going to sleep, but i didnt. I decided to go to Soi 6 instead, it was around 10 o'clock. I got dragged into a bar about half way down the street and stayed there until closing at 1am. The girl i had been hanging out with started to freak me out by constantly staring directly into my eye's, it was weird. So i gave here a good tip for hanging out and proceeded to head to the end of the street. I was immediately approached by a ladyboy with a skimpy pink outfit and matching hair, which was a wig. I agreed to have sex. We got a moped to some apartment in Soi 12. It was close to mine, but she refused to go to my hotel. She banged on the door of this place and kicked some ladyboy out. It felt wrong in honesty, but i stayed. We started to mess around and she was a bit too physical for me, but i was there. She kept asking if she could fuck me, i had a few drinks and was in the moment. I agreed once a condom was used and lube. She got one and asked me to turn around. I said no cause i'd tried that before and it hurt. Eventually i turned around and u know. Something wasnt right, after a short period i put my hand around.....There was no condom. She had removed it. I looked straight into her eye's and knew straight away...."U did that on purpose".......condom broke....."no it fucking didnt", "u didnt say". I was in shock, i cant explain it. Like the anger wasnt there. I through the money down and stormed out.
It's at this stage the fear set in. I jumped on my computer and started googling. I was in shock and didnt even mean to find the forum, but i did luckily enough. I didnt know pep existed. I tried to ring the hospital and explain i could have hiv, they weren't very receptive and fucked me off. I had to sleep. I had an hour or so maybe. I had convinced myself that it was fine, the chances were low I'd crossed swords with someone with it. The medication seemed expensive and it was meant to be heavy shit.....but that guy from the earlier posts, he made sure. He was lucky, but he knew. I cleared my safe of all my money and left the hotel at like 7am.
Money talks in Pattaya, it was all i had. I went back to the apartment complex and eventually found the apartment, it was night when i was there last. Eventually someone opened the door. The ladyboy who was kicked out the night before ushered me in quickly. I was trying to explain i needed to do a test with the ladyboy from last night and i would pay to do it. Someone in the bed said "i will 1000 baht". I said yes, but it didnt look like the lb from the night before. i agreed, i was in shock and just need reassurance from anyone. Very hard to explain. I gave her $50 before we got on the bike. We ended up back at Soi 6 and that's were i saw the lb from the night before. My drama had meant the boss lb had to know what was going down and she was introduced as a friend. She never said a word.
The lb from the night before kicked off hard from the go..."fuck you, i told you i no have hiv"..."fuck you farang". Then the other one who brought me there started kicking off screaming i hadnt paid. I was in shock, usually there would be blood shed at this point. I kept it together. So the lb who did all this goes 3000 bath. Yeah, lets go. She nearly fell over. Couldnt believe it. On the bike it was 4000 baht and when we arrived in Soi Bukho is was 5000 baht. It was very hard to keep focused. As the one who was claiming to not get paid had been spitting on me and screaming i was going to die from hiv. Lovely people,
In the clinic, there looking at this lb with a facial expression of familiarity. She gets her finger pricked, starts screaming and smears her blood across my white tshirt. Lots of abuse. I get mine done. Shortly after this, the two get into a debate in Thai. Time stops for me in that moment...so i butt in past my lb cunt...what does it say. In a quick response....positive for her....negative for you. My legs just went from under me. I was standing & then i wasnt. I was leaning against some bed thing. I was broken inside
There just ignoring me pretty much, my lb wants more money for some other kind of test they havent mentioned yet? i just asked were i had to go. This is important. You need to see the I.D doctor, level 3, Pattaya Bangkok Hospital. I through 3000 baht at that cunt and swiftly got all my bank cards and passport.
I was in major shock in the hospital. They had to hold my hands still to take my temperature. I was a mess. Every second was an eternity. The doctor doesn't start until 10am bye the way and there is a que. When i got in there and explained my situation. They wanted to see the lb and test her. That was my second mistake, At this stage its all about percentages and level's. If i had brought her to the hospital, i would of had far more information. Whether for better or worse. They have a pyramid for hiv and she said she would show me my level of risk. Its a pretty big graph. She pointed directly to the top. Receiving unprotected anal sex from a hiv positive male is the highest risk. The receiver is 4 times more likely to contract the virus. I'll be honest, i shed a tear. They advised a blood test was required, cause if it showed. There was nothing they could do. I was negative. They spoke to me about the tablets. Its all a bit foggy, for me it was like being told someone had died. Its the only emotion i've felt that comes close to it, sad to say. They had cheap one's and expensive one's. I was shocked at the price of the good one's. I was quoted 43,000 baht for a 28 day course. That shocked me. I purchased a two week coarse with the intention of getting more on my return home.
The days after were rough. The tablets are heavy shit, best to eat before you take one. The one in the middle of the night is a melt. The stress and that makes it hard to nod back off. I found alkaseltzer helped in the mornings. My holiday was a wright off. I went to the temple the next day and had to explain to a lb i had befriended on tinder what happened, she wanted to have sex and was upset i refused her. She thought it was how she looked. She took it well and pulled me aside at one point and said one thing "farang give to ladboy, ladyboy give to farang"
Anyway, i got home. Had to register in a hiv clinic. had to be assessed for risk to myself etc. Its been tough. I could accept it if it was an accident, but not like that. All the info on the net scared me to death. No one had a story like mine, or openly described there level of exposure. A lot of people take pep without even knowing if they were exposed and shite on about how it saved them. A straight up story could benefit everyone. I was very unlucky with who i met that night and who know's how many people she's done it to at this stage. Best not to think about these things.
My exposure was between 10-12hrs before i took the tablets. The lb did not ejaculate, there may have been pre-cum. I'm confident the lb was not taking anti viral medication and had a high hiv level. The clinics were not confident i would come through and either was i. After 4 weeks of pep and almost 6 weeks. My blood test is currently negative for hiv. Its optimistic and I'm hopeful.
Take what you will from this story. This tread pushed me to get the answer i needed and the process i needed to follow. I don't come on here much, so apologies if i don't get back to anyone. I'm just through this up to help others who have had an incident and are struggling with the situation.
For others who are shitting it, you can take prep if you want a few weeks before having sex with lb's or males. But always wear protection.
On reflection.....The more random hook ups you have, the greater the risk. Find someone you like, offer to pay for them to be tested and spend some time with them. That's the smartest play.
