Think You Were Exposed to HIV?
« on: January 10, 2011, 02:18:45 pm »
First stop is your doc or go to the nearest ER. What?s next? You may be able to take medications to prevent getting infected with HIV. These medications are called PEP or Post Exposure Prophylaxis. If the doc clears you to take them, you?ll be given the meds right away. The best-case scenario is to start PEP within two hours after HIV exposure, but no later than 36 hours after that time. Under 18? Not to worry: If you?re a minor, you don?t need parental consent to get PEP.
