Don’t Think Twice About PEP

This Is No Time To Overthink Your Safety

Post-exposure prophylaxis (or PEP) is a way to prevent HIV infection after a possible recent exposure. PEP involves taking antiretroviral (ARV) medications, or antiretroviral therapy (ART), 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, please contact us immediately.

What Is PEP?

There are 2 types of PEP: oPEP and nPEP. oPEP stands for “occupational post-exposure prophylaxis.” This is when a health care worker takes PEP because of a possible on-the-job exposure to HIV, such as during a needle stick injury.

The other type of PEP is called nPEP, and it stands for “non-occupational post-exposure prophylaxis.” This is when someone takes PEP because of a possible HIV exposure that happened during sex or injection drug use.

If you believe one of these two describes you with a recent encounter/incident, please contact us immediately to set up an appointment as time is of the essence.

Think About PrEP

PEP is used only in emergency situations – It is not a substitute for regular use of other proven HIV prevention methods, such as PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) which means taking HIV medicines daily to drastically lower your chance of getting infected.

PEP is highly effective, but not 100%, so you should continue to use condoms with sex partners and safe injection practices while taking PEP. These strategies can protect you from being exposed to HIV (and with the use or PrEP), reduce the chances of contracting and/or transmitting HIV to others if you become infected while you’re on PrEP.

Keep in mind that PEP & PrEP are not a cure or a vaccine for HIV, and does not protect against other sexually transmitted infections and/or pregnancy.
