If you’ve had sex with somebody who may be HIV positive, you can reduce your chances of HIV infection by taking post-exposure prophylaxis after sexual exposure (PEPSE) within 72 hours of exposure to the virus.

If you’ve had sex with somebody who may be HIV positive within the last 72 hours, please visit Whittall Street Clinic or your nearest A&E department immediately.
