A last resort
Say you did not use protection (condoms or PrEP, or the condom broke) and you are not sure whether your partner is HIV-negative or undetectable. Or perhaps you got pricked by a used needle during Chemsex. Your last resort for staying HIV-negative can be PEP (short for Post-Exposure Prophylaxis). It involves treatment with HIV medication/drugs.
PEP is a treatment that lasts 4 weeks and reduces the risks of the HIV virus infiltrating the body. The sooner you start PEP, the greater the chance of staying HIV-negative. The treatment should start as soon as possible and always within 72 hours. PEP is available at your local GGD during the week or the hospital Emergency room on weekends.
