Video on HIV Post Exposure Prophylaxis PEP
What is HIV Post Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP)?
In this video, Dr Sii will discuss HIV Post Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP). PEP are medicines given to a person after a high risk HIV exposure to minimize the risk of him/her getting infected with HIV.
Common high risk HIV exposure scenarios include having unprotected sex with a casual partner or sex worker, or condom breaks or slips.
PEP has to be started within 72 hours after the exposure. It is up to 99% effective in preventing a HIV infection.
Most people tolerate the treatment very well although some develop side effects like nausea, diarrhea and lethargy.
Remember, PEP is only effective within 72 hours after a person has been
exposed to HIV.
Speak to our doctors if you suspect that you have had any high risk exposure to HIV.
