Is PEP Right For You?

PEP or Post-exposure prophylaxis is a smart way to prevent HIV infection after a possible recent exposure. PEP involves taking antiretroviral medications within 72 hours after a single high-risk event to help prevent HIV from making copies of itself and spreading throughout your body.

If you think you are at risk (if you were exposed to HIV during sex, if you shared needles during IV drug use, if you were exposed to HIV at work (or elsewhere) via a needle stick injury or you were a victim of sexual assault, please contact us immediately.
