PEP treatment should only be used in emergency situations where you think you have been exposed to HIV. The treatment usually lasts around 28 days. PEP is believed to reduce your chance of contracting HIV by 80%, but shouldn’t be used as an alternative to other preventative measures (such as taking PrEP or using condoms) that significantly lower your risk of HIV infection.
If you believe that you have been exposed, call us to make an appointment or go to your local emergency room if ERC is closed.
ERC welcomes all clients, regardless of their ability to pay. We accept self-pay, private and public insurance. For those who are uninsured, we can help you determine whether you qualify for financial assistance, based on the ability to pay.
