What is DoxyPEP?

DoxyPEP serves as a post-exposure preventive measure for bacterial STIs, including syphilis, chlamydia, and gonorrhea. Picture it as the morning-after pill for bacterial STIs rather than unwanted pregnancies: a single dosage after an unprotected sexual encounter can dramatically diminish the risk of contracting these bacterial infections.

However, it’s vital to highlight that DoxyPEP is ineffective against:

  • HIV
  • Mpox 
  • Other viral contagions

Who's the Right Candidate for DoxyPEP

If you’re a person assigned male at birth, aged 12 or above, DoxyPEP might be suitable for you if:

  • You’ve been diagnosed with a bacterial STI in the past year, or
  • Engaged in unprotected oral or anal sex with another person assigned male at birth within the last 12 months.
