Post Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP) is a treatment that can stop you becoming infected with HIV if you have been exposed to infection. For it to be effective PEP needs to start as soon as possible after exposure to HIV and no later than 72 hours. PEP treatment lasts for 28 days. However,PEP does not stop HIV transmission in 100% of instances. It can be accessed through a sexual health/GUM clinic or A&E department.
