But if you still want extra protection, PrEP is always an option.
From side effects to cost, there are a lot of rumors out there about how PrEP works. Check out the videos below for the real deal.
Take PrEP daily for up to 99% protection from HIV. For protection against other STIs like syphilis, gonorrhea, and chlamydia, add condoms to your routine.
If you have Medicaid, PrEP doesn't cost a thing. If you have other insurance or no insurance, there are programs that can reduce PrEP costs, and we can help.
Some people get side effects from taking medications, including PrEP. Those who get PrEP side effects like stomach pain or headaches usually find that they go away in a few weeks, and most say it's worth the week or two of discomfort for the long-lasting peace of mind.
We know for sure that PrEP does not weaken hormones. So go on, be you.
HIV prevention isn’t the only benefit of PrEP. Users get screened every three months for HIV, STIs, bone and kidney issues, and more—leaving them feeling healthier than ever!
Especially those with different HIV statuses. If your partner is HIV positive but you’re negative, PrEP can help protect you without taking away any intimacy or spontaneity.
