Do you know that there is a drug that stops you from contracting HIV/AIDS? It is called PEP which stands for Post-Exposure Prophylaxis. It simply means taking antiretroviral medicines (ART) after being potentially exposed to HIV to prevent becoming infected.
This information is very important for rape victims as well as those that complained about burst or slipped condom. Today is Friday so ndi FREAKY FUCKING FRIDAY take note.
PEP must be started within 72 hours after a recent possible exposure to HIV, but the sooner you start PEP, the better. Every hour counts.
Once you take the drug within 2 – 3 days after unprotected sex, even if it is with an HIV person, you won’t get the virus. It works 95%.
WHO recommends Truvada for pep as standard regimen and a combination with a third drug.
When rape victims r rushed to the hospital, pep is among the first set of medicines that will be administered to them. My friends sister was raped by 4 cultists in Phc last year, that’s how I got to know, and I thought it wise to share with us. Feel free to share this important information with your friends and loved ones.
