Post-Exposure Prophylaxis, or PEP, is another medication-based HIV prevention tool which lowers the risk of permanent infection after being exposed to HIV. PEP works by preventing the HIV virus from replicating in the body. PEP is only effective if taken within 72 hours of a high risk exposure and consists of taking HIV medications for 28 days.
You should be evaluated for PEP if you’ve had a high risk HIV exposure and are within the 72 hour window. High risk exposures include:
•Unprotected vaginal or anal sex
•Being sexually assaulted
•Being cut or stuck by injection supplies
HIM Program offers evaluations and referrals to PEP for gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals who have sex with men. Our services are available to people regardless of insurance status.
