For those who fear exposure to HIV, the sooner you know your status the sooner you can get into quality and specialized care. If your potential exposure occurred in the past 72 hours, you may qualify for Post-Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP) but you must contact a clinic or your physician immediately. The longer the time interval between your potential exposure to HIV and beginning PEP, the less effective the treatment becomes.
If you are pregnant and fear that you may be HIV positive, getting tested may protect your baby from becoming HIV positive. Knowing your status is a critical component to caring for yourself and your loved ones. For more information, please click on the links listed to the right.
