Post-Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP)
We can provide treatment for post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) over video appointments.
Post-exposure prophylaxis means taking medication to prevent HIV after a possible exposure. PEP must be started within 72 hours of possible exposure and must be taken daily for a month.
Potential scenarios that might place you at risk of exposure to HIV include:
- During sex (for example, if the condom broke)
- Sharing needles, syringes or other equipment to inject drugs
- If you’re a victim of sexual assault
If you are HIV negative and think you may have been recently exposed to HIV, book a video appointment as soon as possible.
