PEP for HIV

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if anyone on the board has had experience taking PEP after barebacking.

 

for those of you who dont know what PEP is, it is a way to prevent HIV infection after exposure, usually a 4 week course of a combination anti-retrovirals, to be started within 72 hours of exposure.

 

i was told this is not a walk in the park, i wonder, how bad do the side effects hit you and what is the cost in Pattaya - where did you get it?

Thanks for sharing that, glad i had the chance to look it up

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Post-exposure_prophylaxis

 

"Post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) is any prophylactic treatment started immediately after exposure to a disease (such as a disease-causing virus), in order to prevent the disease from breaking out.

 

PEP is commonly used, and very effective, to prevent the outbreak of rabies after a bite by a rabid animal. The treatment consists of repeated injections of rabies vaccine and immunoglobulin.

 

In the case of HIV infection, post-exposure prophylaxis is a course of antiretroviral drugs which is thought to reduce the risk of seroconversion after events with high risk of exposure to HIV (e.g. unprotected anal or vaginal sex, needlestick injuries, or sharing needles). To be effective, it must be started as soon as possible after exposure and ideally within an hour [1]. The treatment for HIV lasts four weeks [2].

 

While there is compelling data to suggest that PEP after HIV exposure is extremely effective, there have been cases where it has failed. The regimen can be very demanding and have unpleasant side effects including malaise, fatigue, diarrhoea, headaches, nausea and vomiting [3].

 

According to one Australian study, two thirds of people taking PEP experienced mild to moderate side effects and one quarter of people taking PEP experienced severe side effects."

thanks for looking that up,

 

for those interested in some Pattaya specific info, the doctor to see is either Dr Prasit at the Bangkok Pattaya hospital, or Dr. Philippe Seur, the last one works non profit and will have the cheaper medicine, right now Dr. Philippe is on holiday though.

 

costs estimation will be around 2.5k baht if you include the HIV test you will have to do beforehand.

 

they are also working on a pre-exposure treatment, based on the same principle... logic dictates that if it works post expo, it would also work pre-expo? i doubt you'll be wanting to holiday with these kind of meds in your system though :Hug1:

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
