Contact with HIV

If you have had unprotected sex (without a condom) with someone who is HIV positive, or have engaged in any risk-taking behaviour that could have transmitted HIV in the last three days (72 hours) then taking a short course of anti-HIV drugs may help to prevent infection.

This is known as Post Exposure Prophylaxis or PEP. It involves taking a course of anti-HIV drugs for four weeks. It is more effective the sooner you take it - so call us during the week if the Tuesday clinic is a long way away, or contact:
Eastbourne NHS Sexual Health Clinic or,
Claud Nicol Centre in Brighton directly.

We cannot prescribe these drugs at the Circle Room but can help direct you towards a place which will.
