Pregnancy and breastfeeding

All women who have the potential to be pregnant at the time of presentation for PEP should be offered pregnancy testing. Emergency contraception is offered to women presenting for PEP within 72 hours, who are at risk of pregnancy. Follow-up pregnancy tests should be offered at 3-4 weeks post-exposure where indicated. Specialist advice should be sought urgently for women who require PEP and are pregnant or breastfeeding.
