PrEP is an excellent tool in preventing the spread of HIV, but there are some essential facts you’ll need to know to get started.
- Pre-exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) is a daily pill.
- PrEP is 99% effective at preventing HIV only when taken as prescribed.
- PrEP is for HIV-negative people of any gender or sexual orientation who may be at risk of contracting HIV through sex or drug use.
- PrEP does not protect against STDs and should be used with condoms.
While taking PrEP, you’ll have to visit your health care provider routinely as recommended for follow-up visits, HIV tests, and prescription refills. When taken as prescribed, PrEP is highly effective for preventing HIV.
