Can post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) stop me getting HIV?
Post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) may stop you developing an HIV infection if you've been exposed to the virus. However, it doesn't always work.
You may have been exposed to HIV if you've:
- had unprotected sex (without using a condom)
- had sex with someone with HIV and the condom broke
- been injured with an HIV-infected needle
