PEP For HIV Treatment in South West Delhi

What Exactly Is PEP?

PEP, or post-exposure prophylaxis, is a brief course of HIV medications administered shortly after possible HIV exposure to prevent the virus from taking hold in your body. It must be started within 72 hours (3 days) of a possible HIV exposure or it will not work. Every hour is valuable!

PEP should only be used in an emergency. It is not intended for long-term use by people who are frequently exposed to HIV. How Can You Tell If You Need PEP? If you are HIV-negative or don’t know your HIV status and believe you have been exposed to HIV in the last 72 hours, PEP may be right for you.

During sex (for example, you had a condom break with a partner with unknown HIV status or a partner with HIV who is not virally suppressed) or through shared needles, syringes, or other drug-injection equipment By means of sexual assault Contact your doctor right away, or go to an emergency room or urgent care clinic right away.

Your health care provider or emergency room doctor will evaluate you, assist you in determining whether PEP is appropriate for you, and work with you to determine which PEP medications to take. Further more, if you are a health care worker, you may be prescribed PEP following a possible HIV exposure at work, such as a needle stick injury.

How Long Do You Need to Take PEP?

If you are prescribed PEP, you must take your HIV medications every day for 28 days. You will also need to see your doctor at certain points while taking PEP and after you finish it for HIV testing and other tests.

How Well Does PEP Work?

When taken correctly, PEP is effective in preventing HIV infection, but it is not 100 percent effective. The sooner you begin PEP after being exposed to HIV, the better. While on PEP, it is critical to use other HIV prevention methods, such as using condoms correctly every time you have sex and only using new, sterile needles and works when injecting drugs.

Does PEP Cause Side Effects?

PEP is safe, but the HIV medications used in PEP may cause nausea in some people. In almost all cases, these side effects are treatable and do not pose a threat to one’s life. If you are taking PEP, talk to your doctor if you experience any side effects that bother you or do not go away. PEP medications can also interact with other medications a person is taking (called a drug interaction). As a result, it’s critical to inform your doctor about any other medications you’re taking.

Can You Take PEP Every Time You Have a Potential Exposure to HIV?

No. PEP should only be used in an emergency. It is not meant to be used in place of other HIV prevention methods. If you suspect that you are frequently exposed to HIV, speak with your doctor about PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis).

Can You Get Assistance Paying for PEP?

If you are prescribed PEP for another reason and do not have insurance (Medicaid, Medicare, private, or employer-based)—your health care provider can apply for free PEP medications through the medication assistance programmes run by the government.
