  PEP stands for post-exposure prophylaxis in other words it is a form of protection (against HIV) that you can take after you have taken a risk or had a condom break on you. PEP is a course of HIV medication which you can take if you have been at risk of HIV infection. The course of HIV medication lasts 28 days and, if you start taking it within 72 hours of putting yourself at risk, it may be able to prevent you from becoming infected with HIV. You can self assess your risk of maybe requiring PEP.
