Do you need HIV protection?


What is PrEP?
PrEP (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis) is a medicine that provides up to 99% protection from HIV. These antiviral drugs are called Truvada and Descovy (pills) and Apretude (injection).
Can anyone take PrEP?
PrEP is for HIV negative people at risk for HIV through sex or intravenous drug use. Ask your health care provider if PrEP is right for you.
Is PrEP safe?
PrEP is a safe and highly effective HIV prevention option. Some people get headaches or nausea which may last a few days or weeks.
Will PrEP protect me from other STIs?
No. PrEP only protects you from HIV. Using PrEP and condoms provides protection from HIV and most sexually transmitted infections.
How often do I need to take PrEP?
You take a PrEP pill once a day or get an injection every two months.
What is On Demand PrEP or 2-1-1 PrEP?
2-1-1 means taking 2 pills from 2-24 hours before sex, 1 pill 24 hours after the first two, and another pill 24 hours later. This way of using PrEP has only been proven for tops/penis insertive and bottoms/anal receptive. This may not work for a vaginal receptive partner.
I am a trans person taking hormone therapy, can I use PrEP?
Studies have shown that transgender people can safely take hormone therapy and PrEP.
How can I afford PrEP, and where can I get it?
PrEP is covered by Medicaid and most private insurance plans. If you don’t have any health insurance look for other special PrEP assistance programs that may cover the cost. Check out the resources below.
