Singapore HIV PEP (Post-Exposure Prophylaxis) Clinic
(9 Locations. Open During Lunch . Male and Female Doctors Available . Open on Saturday and Sunday)
What is HIV Post-Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP)
HIV Post-Exposure Prophylaxis (HIV PEP) is a medicine that is given after a person has been exposed to HIV to reduce his/her risk by as much as 99%.
The medicine is taken for 1 month.
It has to be started within 72 hours (3 days) from exposure.
Most people do not have any side effects while taking this medicine.
Rarely, some patients develop nausea or diarrhoea. However, most side effects disappear within a few weeks of continued use of the medicine.
A follow-up HIV test is done at 1 month and again at 3 months after exposure.
Speak to our Doctors now if you have been exposed to HIV like:
- Condom Broke
- Injury to a contaminated needle
- High-risk sexual exposure (eg to sex workers)
The usual costs involved are:
1. Medication - from $1926.00
(This is for the entire 1 month of medication. The price is the same regardless of which drug regime we use)
If you do not require the blood tests (e.g. you have done them recently) the cost will be lower.
Contact us now at email@example.com
2. Rapid HIV test (if necessary) - $54.00
(This is to ascertain that you do not have an established HIV infection)
3. Baseline blood tests (if necessary) - $150.00
(Full Blood Count, Liver Function, Kidney Function)
These tests are to establish a baseline.
We do not need to wait for these results to start the PEP treatment
You may not need these tests if you had them done recently e.g. when you did an executive health screening
4. Consultation from $67.00
(Depending on the duration of the consultation)
