We provide PEP (post exposure prophylaxis) or Post Exposure Prevention. PEP is a preventive medical treatment that started right after the exposure or possible exposure to a pathogen (bacteria or virus), in order to prevent the infection from occurring. PEP for:
  • HIV
  • Syphilis
  • Gonorrhea
  • Chlamydia
  • Herpes Virus

Chlamydia is one fo the most common bacterial infection that acquired during the sex: vaginal, rectal, oral through urine, semen (cum), pre-cum, vaginal fluids. May infect vagina, penis, rectum, throat and eyes.

Most of the time its (asymptomatic) which means does not have any symptoms. IF does- it presents with burning on urination, need for urinating more often, pain on urination, lower abdominal or lower back pain, pain during sex, vaginal/penile/rectal discharge. or may present as sore throat and pink eye.

Pregnant women can pass it to her baby during childbirth causing eye infection and potential blindness, lung infection.

Rate of rectal chlamydia is very high in MSM Chlamydia is cured with a single dose of antibiotic. Testing may require urine specimen /vaginal/rectal or penile swab and takes 1-2 days to get result back.

If left untreated can cause infertility (inability to have children), pelvic pain.

penile or rectal discharge, pelvic pain, pain on defecation, pain during the sexual intercourse.

Gonorrhea is easily cured with antibiotic, however in case of drug-resistant bacteria (from multiple prior infections and treatments) could be difficult to treat.

Herpes is a very common STD. It can cause sores on the genitals /rectum and/or mouth. An estimated 1 in 6 people in the U.S. has genital herpes. There is no cure for herpes, but prescription medication can decrease frequency of outbreaks and ease symptoms and lower the chances of passing the virus to others.

Herpes is transmitted from skin-to-skin contact when your genitals and/or mouth touch the genitals and/or mouth – usually during oral, anal or vaginal sex – of someone with the virus. Herpes can be passed even if the penis or tongue does not go all the way in the vagina, anus, or mouth.

Herpes is most easily transmitted when sores are open and wet, because fluid from herpes blisters easily spreads the virus. But herpes can also “shed” and be passed to others when there are no sores and the skin looks totally normal. Most people get herpes from someone who does not have any sores.

The most common symptom of genital herpes are painful blisters in groups, or sores on the vagina, vulva, cervix, penis, butt, anus, or inside of the thighs.

The first outbreak usually starts about 2 to 20 days after exposure to herpes, but sometimes it takes years for the first outbreak to happen. It usually lasts about 2 to 4 weeks. Even though the blisters go away, the virus stays in the body and can cause sores again. It is common to get repeat outbreaks, especially during the first year of having herpes.

The first outbreak of herpes is usually the worst. Repeat outbreaks are usually shorter and less painful. Most people with herpes get fewer outbreaks as time goes on, and some stop having them altogether.

Other symptoms may include itching, pain around the genitals or having trouble peeing. If genital herpes is caused by HSV-2, there may also be flu-like symptoms, such as swollen glands, fever, chills and aches.

Usually, oral herpes is less painful than genital herpes and doesn’t make you feel as sick. Oral herpes causes sores on the lips or around the mouth – called cold sores or fever blisters.

Cold sores last a few weeks and then go away on their own. They can re-appear in weeks, months, or years. Cold sores are usually harmless in kids and adults, but can be dangerous to newborn babies.

Postexposure prophylaxis is a daily oral medication for 14 days. There’s no cure for herpes, but prescription medications can ease symptoms, decrease frequency of outbrakes and lower the chances of passing the virus to other people.
