Do I need PEP?
If you think you’ve been exposed to HIV you should access PEP from GETPEP.info
You need PEP if you are HIV-negative but have been potentially exposed to HIV. Don’t forget, it doesn’t matter if you are the top or bottom – anyone can get HIV.
However, just because you’ve had sex without a condom doesn’t mean you need PEP.
If you’ve fucked someone who is on PrEP, or positive with an undetectable viral load it is not recommended that you access PEP.
- We know that people who are on PrEP and adhering to their regime are HIV-negative, and therefore are unable to transmit the virus, as they do not have any HIV in their body.
- We know that people with an undetectable viral load are unable to transmit the virus.
You need to have all the facts to make the decision on whether you need PEP and you need to have trust in the person you’re fucking.. If you can, discuss your exposure with your partner. Don’t have your hook-ups contact details? It’s best to access PEP as soon as possible.
Call one of the hotlines on GETPEP.info if you’re at all unsure about your risk.
