PEP is the abbreviation for Post-exposure prophylaxis. It is the course of HIV medication that is prescribed to the person infected with this deadly virus. The medications are given soon after the person gets the infection. PEP medicines prevent the virus from damaging the immune system.
The treatment must be started within 72 hours of exposure to HIV infection. If given late, the medicines do not provide desired effects. They fail to work and the virus keeps on damaging the immune system of the infected person Read More..

In that heat of the moment, we went ahead and had sex. Unprotected. After a week, I noticed few rashes on my thighs. Got really worried. I was sure I have got in touch with HIV!! While doing my research on google, I found lot many confusing answers to my problem until I came across this website and got my answers after a detailed discussion with their doctors. I shall ever remain thankful to them for guiding me properly and clearing all my doubts. And, well, those rashes were just rashes which went away in a couple of days.Dhirendra Banker, New Delhi
I felt like ending my life, when I got the feeling that I might have contacted AIDS. It was my first kiss and frankly I did not enjoy it the way he kissed me. He actually bit my lip resulting in some blood. I talked to my friend and they scared me with all those HIV stories. By chance, I came across this website and got in touch with the HIV counsellors who were knowledgeable enough to clear my doubts and made me feel alright after those depressing days. I must say I would have certainly gone into depression if I did not consult with them.Riddhima Student, Chandigarh
I was a regular to have paid sex at those Spas and massage centers. It was my deadliest mistake that I never had protection while having sex with those strangers. Result was inevitable. I had contacted with STDs. Went to so many doctors and spent lakhs of rupees in getting cured, but all in vain. Finally when I came to this place, I was already an HIV +ve. Life came to a halt for me. But after a counselling session with the doctor, I realised how I could mend my faults and start my life afresh. I learnt to live with this evil and I�m alive.Daniel Sales Executive, Faridabad
