What is PREP?

Preventing HIV with PrEP

Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) refers to a preventative measure against HIV transmission. PrEP involves the regular intake of a single dose of Truvada or Descovy, an HIV medication, once daily. This prophylactic regimen serves as an effective preventive strategy to mitigate the risk of acquiring HIV infection.

PrEP: HIV Only Protection

While Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) offers reassurance regarding HIV prevention, it is important to note that PrEP does not provide protection against other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) such as syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydia, and hepatitis.

PrEP: Regular Medical Check-ups

Regular medical consultations are vital while on PrEP, typically scheduled every three months, for routine blood work and sexually transmitted infection (STI) screening.
