PrEP (Pre-exposure Prophylaxis)
PrEP is a pill for those who do not have HIV, but are at exposure risk. Taken only once a day, 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.
Should I take PrEP?
PrEP is for people who do not have HIV, but are at high risk for getting it from sex or injection drug use.
It is recommended for people who are not in a mutually monogamous relationship.
