What is PrEP?

PrEP stands for pre-exposure prophylaxis. It's a pill you take daily to reduce your chances of getting HIV if you are HIV negative. It helps before you're infected, so HIV can't settle into your body and spread. If taken every day, your level of protection is around 99 percent.

PrEP is not a vaccine or a cure for HIV. PrEP will not treat HIV. It doesn't protect you from other sexually transmitted diseases. You'll still need condoms for that. PrEP also doesn't prevent pregnancy. You should visit your doctor every three months for an HIV test and follow-up care while you're taking PrEP.

Are you eligible for PrEP?

It doesn't matter what your gender identity and sexual orientation are. PrEP is an option for someone in any of these situations:

  • In an ongoing relationship with an HIV-positive partner
  • Has sex with multiple partners and doesn't always use condoms
  • Injects drugs or shares needles

If you think you may be eligible for PrEP, please make an appointment with one of our providers below.
