Pre-exposure prophylaxis (or PrEP) is when people at very high risk for HIV take HIV medicines daily to lower their chances of getting infected. PrEP can stop HIV from taking hold and spreading throughout your body. It is highly effective for preventing HIV if used as prescribed but is much less effective when not taken consistently.
PrEP may be a good option for you if:
   • Your partner lives with HIV
   • Your partner’s HIV status is not known
   • You’ve had an STD in the past 6 months
   • You use injection drugs
   • Your partner uses injection drugs
Daily PrEP reduces the risk of getting HIV from sex by more than 90%. Among people who inject drugs, it reduces the risk by more than 70%. Your risk of getting HIV from sex can be even lower if you combine PrEP with condoms and other prevention methods.
PrEP should be taken every day. Peole who take PrEP should see their health care provider every 3 months for follow-up and prescription refills.
PrEP is covered by most insurance programs. If you don’t have insurance, you can get medication assistance to help pay for the PrEP.
For more information on PrEP contact our clinic at 850-526-2412.
