PREP and PEP
PEP (post-exposure prophylaxis) or PEP SE (sexual exposure)
Post Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP) also known as PEP SE (post-exposure prophylaxis sexual exposure) is a course of medication after a potential exposure, designed to reduce the risk of HIV infection. It is the same meds that are used to treat HIV.
The course of medication lasts 28 days and may be able to prevent you from becoming infected with HIV if you start taking it within 72 hours of being at risk of HIV exposure; eg: a condom break during fucking.
If you think you may need PEP don't spend the next 72 hours wondering, or searching the Internet for the right advice. The right advice is right here and you should go to a sexual health clinic now as time is of the essence. You can also obtain PEP at A&E (Accident and Emergency) departments of some hospitals. A&Es are especially important at weekends because most sexual health clinics are closed.
