Most of us already know about PrEP (Pre Exposure Prophylaxis), which prevents HIV infection in HIV negative people. But have you heard of PEP (Post Exposure Prophylaxis)?
PEP is a four week course of HIV treatments which may stop HIV infection occurring, provided the treatment is started as soon as possible after the risk event happens. Although safe sex is the best way to avoid HIV/AIDS, we all slip up sometimes, and it's important to have as much information about STI/STD treatment as possible.
You can get PEP & PrEP at sexual health clinics & hospital emergency departments.
