In the case of HIV exposure, post-exposure prophylaxis is a course of anti retroviral drugs which reduces the risk of seroconversion after events with high risk of exposure to HIV (e.g., unprotected anal or vaginal sex, needlestick injuries, or sharing needles). The CDC recommends PEP for any HIV negative person who has recently been exposed to HIV for any reason.
To be most effective, treatment should begin within an hour of exposure.After 72 hours post-exposure PEP is much less effective, and may not be effective at all.Prophylactic treatment for HIV typically lasts four weeks
