If you've had unprotected sex and think you may have been exposed to HIV it's important to act quickly.

Transmission can be prevented through the use of prophylaxis treatment. The 3 drug combination treatment must be commenced within 72 hours of exposure following assessment by a physician in a clinic or Accident & Emergency Department.

This treatment  requires tablets to be taken once or twice a day for 28 days to be successful.

Find your nearest clinic or contact the sexual health service 0300 790 0245 (alternative telephone number 01622 225713) for advice and help. This service is available Monday to Friday, 9am - 5pm.
