Post-exposure prophylaxis after sexual exposure to HIV (PEPSE)

If you’ve had unprotected sex – sex without a condom, or you used a condom and it broke – with somebody who you think might be HIV positive within the last 72 hours, you may be able to avoid infection by taking PEPSE.

This medicine must be taken within 72 hours of the potential contact with HIV to be effective.

PEPSE is available from your nearest A&E department or Whittall Street Clinic. No other Umbrella clinics offer this treatment.
