PEP และ PrEP

At WellMed Clinic, we offer comprehensive services for PEP and PrEP(Post-Exposure Prophylaxis and Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis) drugs to promote HIV prevention.

Emergency PEP in Bangkok

PEP (Post-Exposure Prophylaxis) is administered after a potential exposure to HIV has occurred. It is considered an emergency intervention, and its effectiveness diminishes if not started within 72 hours after exposure. The medications used in PEP work similarly to those in PrEP, inhibiting the virus’s ability to replicate. However, the treatment regimen for PEP is more intense, often involving multiple antiretroviral drugs taken for a period of 28 days.

If you’ve had a potential exposure to HIV, it’s important to act quickly. At WellMed Clinic, we provide confidential and effective emergency PEP services.

PrEP Refill

PrEP (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis) is a preventative measure taken before potential exposure to HIV. It involves taking a specific medication, commonly Truvada or Descovy, on an ongoing basis. People who are at high risk of HIV exposure—such as sexually active individuals with multiple partners, people who engage in unprotected sex, or drug users who share needles—often opt for PrEP as a long-term prevention strategy.

It should be noted that not everyone is a suitable candidate for PrEP. Our healthcare provider will conduct a thorough evaluation, including HIV testing and assessment of kidney function, before prescribing the medication.

Once you are prescribed for PrEP, our clinic offers hassle-free refills. Our clinic streamlines the process of PrEP refills, allowing you to conveniently access your medication for up to 6 months at a time. Contact us today for more information.

FAQs

What Is the Difference Between PEP And PrEP?

PEP and PrEP (Post-Exposure Prophylaxis and Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis) are both HIV prevention methods, but they are used in different situations.

PrEP is a pre-exposure measure, whereas PEP is a post-exposure emergency intervention.

PrEP is designed for long-term use, while PEP is a short-term, 28-day treatment.

PrEP is generally prescribed for high-risk individuals, while PEP is for specific emergency situations.

PrEP often involves a single antiretroviral drug, while PEP usually requires a combination of drugs.

Both are highly effective when taken correctly, but the efficacy of PEP diminishes if not taken within the 72-hour window after exposure.
