What is PEP and PrEP?
- PEP stands for "post-exposure prophylaxis." It means taking pills within 72 hours of being potentially exposed to prevent HIV from spreading in your body.
- PrEP stands for "pre-exposure prophylaxis." It is a way for people who do not have HIV but who are at substantial risk of getting it to prevent HIV infection by taking a pill every day. PrEP can reduce your risk of getting HIV by almost 99%.
