HIV Post Exposure Prophylaxis (HIV PEP) For Suspected HIV Exposure
(Caring & Treating Since 2005 – PEP HIV / Post Exposure Prophylaxis)
PEP HIV (HIV Post Exposure Prophylaxis) can reduce your risk of being infected with the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). HIV PEP is most effective if started within 72 hours upon suspected HIV exposure. The ideal time to start HIV PEP is within 48 hours from exposure. The earlier the treatment, the better.
HIV PEP treatment may be prescribed to anyone with high-risk HIV exposure. It involves undergoing Antiretroviral (ARV) medications / antiretroviral therapy (ART) for a full month. The medication is similar to that used for HIV PrEP (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis); the difference being that HIV PrEP is taken daily before any HIV exposure.
