HIV and PEPSE

PEPSE stands for Post-Exposure Prophylaxis following Sexual Exposure. It is a short course of HIV treatment, given to people who may have been exposed to HIV, in order to reduce the risk of them becoming HIV positive as a result of unprotected sex – this can be, having sexual intercourse without a condom.

You need to visit the hub/central clinic at Trinity Square if you think you need this treatment – it is vital that it is started within 72 hours of the sexual exposure.

HIV

If you have been diagnosed with HIV infection, you will need to attend clinics for regular check ups, which will include blood tests to monitor the HIV infection. You will get support to help you deal with your diagnosis, the tests needed to monitor the HIV infection and any other support you need. You will be seen regularly by the Sexual Health Consultant and the Sexual Health Advisor Team.

When it is time to start treatment for your HIV infection you will be referred to a neighbouring service where the treatment is available.
