It is not many people know what it is, but prophylaxis can help those who exposed the risk of times as unprotected sex or obtained wound with something sharp needlestick contaminated by HIV.
Talking with several friends call girls could see the lack of knowledge and great interest in knowing what is the prophylaxis.
Post-Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP) is a form of prevention of HIV infection using drugs that are part of the cocktail used to treat AIDS (zidovudine + lamivudine), for people who may have come into contact with the virus recently through occupational exposure in the case of health professionals or for non-occupational exposure (sexual) held in cases of sex without a condom or sexual violence. These medications need to be taken by 28 days without stopping, to prevent infection, always with medical advice.
In the case of a possible contact with HIV, either in cases of sexual violence and health professionals who are injured with needles and other contaminated sharp objects, seek as soon as possible, a public health service or to be accredited.
Ideally, you start taking the medication until 2 hours after exposure to HIV but no later than 72 hours. The efficacy of PEP may diminish as the hours pass.
The risk of HIV transmission varies with the exposure of nature: from the 1 30%% in receptive anal intercourse, 0,1% of the 10% in insertive anal intercourse and the receptive vaginal, 0,1% of the 1% in insertive vaginas.
Although there are descriptions of HIV infection in people who only practiced oral sex, the risk of this type of practice is much lower.
The transmission probability varies with the presence or absence of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), genital sores (herpes, syphilis), circumcision, anal dysplasia or cervical with virulence and the concentration of virus (viral load) present in secretions sexual.
As soon prophylaxis is administered, the better the result. Experimental data indicate that infection rates are lower when it starts in the first 36 hours. One study showed that children of infected mothers have a lower chance of contracting HIV when treated in the early 48 hours after birth.
