Take control of your sexual health.
Taking PrEP is a simple and easy step you can take towards a healthy sex life. It’s a key part of a wide range of practices, which include PEP, condoms and more to have the kind of sex you want. There are different drug combinations for PrEP, and it will soon be available as an injection every other month. Your healthcare provider will help you choose the right one for you.
What does PrEP do?
PrEP can prevent HIV infection by stopping the virus from infecting your body if you are exposed.
Who should consider taking PrEP?
PrEP is for anyone who is HIV negative and wants to stay that way. You may particularly benefit from PrEP if you:
- Have sexual or needle-sharing partners who are HIV positive with a detectable or unknown viral load
- Were diagnosed with an STI in the past three months
- Don’t use condoms all the time
- Want to add an additional HIV prevention tool to your toolbox
What if I'm uninsured or PrEP is too expensive?
If you are uninsured or cannot afford PrEP, you will meet with a navigator to discuss financial assistance options available to you.
PrEP Tip: Carry a pill with you
To help you remember, carry a pill in a pill box or a sealed container. This way, if you miss a dose you will have a pill on hand.
Visit your healthcare provider every three months for medication refills and checkups. A checkup will include HIV screening and other tests as needed.
Tell your provider right away if you experience fevers, fatigue, swollen glands or a rash – these may be early signs of an HIV infection.
What is PEP?
Post-Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP) is a medication regimen that you can take if you believe you have just been exposed to HIV. If you take PEP as directed, it can prevent HIV from infecting your body. PEP must be taken within 72 hours of exposure, but should be taken as soon as possible to maximize the chance it will work. If you believe you have been exposed to HIV and are interested in PEP, don’t wait. For maximum effectiveness, PEP should be initiated as soon as possible after potential exposure to HIV.
