PrEP & PEP to Prevent HIV

PrEP IS LIKE BIRTH CONTROL FOR PREVENTING HIV

When taken daily, PrEP reduces the risk of getting HIV from sex by 99% and from injection drug use by 70%. PrEP is easy to take and has minimal side effects.

Please note that PrEP only protects against HIV and not other STIs. That's why it's important to use other forms of protection like condoms.

Who Should Take PrEP?

The CDC says you should take PrEP if any of following apply to you:
  • You're in an ongoing sexual relationship with an HIV positive partner.
  • You're not in a mutually monogamous relationship with a partner who has been recently tested.
  • You're a man who's had unprotected anal sex with another man or you have been diagnosed with an STI in the past 6 months.
  • You’ve injected drugs in the last 6 months or plan to in the future, especially with shared needles or works.
  • Regardless of gender or sex, you do not regularly use a condom with partners whose status is unknown and your partner has risk factors for potential HIV exposure (basically, if any of the above apply to your partner, you should consider PrEP).
