With all of the safe-sex messages aimed at sexually active individuals we're all human and someone is bound to slip up or decide against using protection. But did you know that there's a possible way to avoid becoming infected with HIV if you think you may have been exposed?

Post Exposure Prophylaxis or PEP as it is commonly referred to is a series of pills, usually 3 to 4 that are taken every day for four weeks after the initial exposure to the virus.

Pep411.com has created a wonderful PSA specifically for men of color, one of the hardest hit demographics by HIV/AIDS explaining the benefits of PEP.

Get into the video below. It may not be suitable for work.

This is interesting. Like any drug, I hope that people don't start using this as their "safe sex" methodology. Hopefully the scare of potential exposure is enough to change behavior. I do applaud their efforts to hit the targeted population.

information is always a good thing...but...
PEP is extremely expensive and very difficult to actually get. Most doctors dont want to deal with it, and even w insurance the co-pay can be expensive.
without insurance, unless you have a few grand sitting around, you are probably out of luck
