PEP / nPEP: An emergency treatment for exposure to HIV.

Condom broke?  Had unprotected sex (bareback) and worried?

When started within 48-72 hours following a high-risk HIV exposure, post-exposure prophylaxis can reduce the chances of your becoming HIV-positive.

The key is speed – report to your nearest Emergency Department to get PEP medication.
