It's meant to be taken within 3 days (72 hours) after condomless sex, but it is best to take it as quickly as possible after unprotected sex, so it can work to stop these infections before they start and cause problems.

How does B doxy-PEP work?

B doxy-PEP, short for Doxycycline Post-Exposure Prophylaxis, is a targeted strategy for potential STD prevention. Let's explore the components of this approach:

  • Doxycycline: This is an antibiotic commonly prescribed for various bacterial infections, including some sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and infections (STIs).
  • Post-exposure: This term signifies the critical window following potential exposure to an STD, such as after engaging in unprotected sexual activity.
  • Prophylaxis: Prophylaxis refers to a preventive measure designed to ward off disease.

In essence, if you have participated in sexual activity where protection like condoms wasn't utilized, and you're apprehensive about potential exposure to certain STI bacteria, B doxy-PEP can be taken within 72 hours. It acts to inhibit the bacteria from establishing themselves in your system, thus serving as a precautionary measure against specific sexually transmitted infections.

B doxy-PEP Indications

B doxy-PEP should be taken with caution and specific considerations:

  • Avoid Consumption with: Dairy products, calcium supplements, antacids, or isotretinoin, as they may interfere with absorption.

Disclaimer

B doxy-PEP is not formulated to protect against Monkeypox, HIV, herpes, or other viral infections. Currently, there is a lack of sufficient evidence to endorse the use of b doxy-PEP for STD prevention in individuals engaging in receptive vaginal sex. The CDC has acknowledged off-label usage of B doxy-PEP for STD prevention and is actively reviewing data to determine future clinical recommendations. Presently, the effectiveness data on B doxy-PEP is primarily applicable to gay and bisexual cisgender men and transgender women. Investigations involving cisgender women are ongoing, according to the CDC's guidance.
