PEP: MEDICATION AFTER AN EXPOSURE
While you may not need this today – take 2 minutes of your day to read-up on something you (or someone you know) may need another day. It’called PEP, and it can help prevent HIV AFTER a potential exposure.
For people who have questioned their judgement, had some intoxicated encounters, or who have been a victim of sexual assault and were potentially exposed to HIV, PEP is a 28-day course of HIV medications that can be prescribed to stop HIV from establishing inside the body. BUT – time is of the essence, and PEP must be started within 72 hours after exposure.
Included in this week’s Mail-Order-Brief, you’ll receive either a Peach or Eggplant refrigerator magnet for you to pop-up as a reminder. It has a discreet link to our website to get more info about PEP, and we hope it’s there if you – or someone you know – ever needs it!
