CAN I GET PEP?

PEP ONLINE SELF-ASSESSMENT

PEP is a month-long course of anti-HIV medication, which can be given to HIV negative men to prevent HIV transmission immediately after they may have been at risk. However, not all men need or will be able to access PEP even if they’ve had unprotected sex.

This online assessment will help you find out whether you would be likely to be given PEP by a GUM clinic or hospital accident and emergency department.

It’s important to remember that a doctor will not necessarily prescribe PEP even if they have been exposed to HIV. The doctor will make a decision based on strict prescribing criteria and after making a judgement on the likely risks.

Before receiving PEP, you will probably be asked to take an HIV test. It is essential to check that you didn’t already have HIV before this risk. This is because taking PEP if you already have HIV can cause drug resistance and cause complications for treating HIV in the future.
