PrEP stands for
Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis
PrEP is an oral medication that provides protection from HIV. PrEP helps prevent HIV infection by stopping HIV from replicating inside your body.

When taken correctly, PrEP is effective to prevent getting HIV from unprotected sex or injection drug use. It is much less effective when it is not taken regularly. You still need to use condoms if taking PrEP to prevent the transmission of STIs and to avoid unplanned pregnancies. PrEP has been shown to reduce the risk of getting HIV from sex by over 90% if taken correctly. For injecting drug use, studies show PrEP reduces HIV risk by over 70%.
Is PrEP right for me?
In several studies, PrEP has shown to reduce the risk of getting HIV from sex by over 90% if taken consistently. When taken every day or as prescribed, PrEP can provide a high level of protection against HIV, but it is important to still use condoms to protect against other STIs like syphilis and gonorrhea. PrEP does not prevent pregnancy. It takes about 7 days of taking PrEP daily before it provides protection for anal sex, and 21 days for vaginal sex and injection drug use.

PrEP should be taken only under the supervision of a qualified doctor. Your doctor will decide if you are eligible for PrEP and issue you a prescription.
If a dose is missed, it should be taken whenever remembered. If two dosages are taken by mistake, that is alright, only take one pill next time. You don’t have to take multiple pills if dosage is missed. You can choose to get our daily reminders in the future.
