PEPSE

Post Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP) is HIV medication that is prescribed to a HIV negative person, within 72 hours of potential exposure to HIV. Ideally it should be started within 24 hours. It needs to be taken for 28 days. A&E departments are able to start PEP when our clinics are closed.


PEP is recommended:

  • If the partner was HIV positive and not on treatment
  • You had anal sex without a condom.
  • If you had a partner of unknown HIV status belonging to a group at high risk of HIV (e.g. Gay man or from Africa/ SE Asia)
  • You were penetrated anally without a condom
  • If you shared injecting needles

PEP is not recommended:

  • Your HIV positive partner on treatment and has undetectable virus levels
  • Human bites
  • Another person’s semen gets in your eye
  • You had oral sex (Mouth to vagina/penis)
