Question on where to get PEP
Mar 7, 2009

Hello, I was having protected receptive anal sex. The condom broke, but I didn't realize it for about 1 minute. I immediately stopped, and tried washing with as much water as I could get. Person is of unknown (probably risky) status. Question is how and where can I get PEP treatment in Denver CO. ?

Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your post from our city.

Here in Denver, PEP is available at most major medical center's emergency departments. I know for sure that you'd be able to access this through Denver Health, the University Hospital or at our emergency department at Rose Medical Center.

The key is not to wait-- PEP has little benefit if started after 72 hours of exposure.

Be well, BY
