HIV (human immunodeficiency virus), the virus that causes AIDS (acquired immune deficiency syndrome) has become the most feared of all sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Thanks to advancements in medical science, it is now possible to institute a medical protocol that will prevent one from being infected with HIV. Time is of the essence after exposure to HIV via a condom break, condom slip or if no condom was used. HIV PEP (post-exposure prophylaxis) is currently the treatment of choice that is available to mitigate the spread of HIV throughout the body after a person has been exposed. It is critical that a potentially HIV exposed person seek treatment within 72-hours of the potential HIV exposure. The goal of this medical protocol is to suppress any virus that may have entered the body, thus reducing the probability of the virus latching on, and multiplying.
A patient’s HIV test results must be negative in order to be eligible for the prophylactic treatment. The staff at Shim Clinic, an STD Clinic in Singapore, will perform a rapid HIV test along with other baseline tests to assess the patient’s condition. Early administration of antiretroviral treatment reduces the risk of HIV infection by more than 80%. This Singapore STD clinic also tests and treats other STD infections, such as: Hepatitis B, Genital Herpes, Genital Warts, Molluscum Contagiosum, Syphilis, Gonorrhoea, Chlamydia, Trichomoniasis, and Candidiasis.
