“After being on PrEP for over a year, I have no side effects and I live a great, healthy life.”
PrEP (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis) is an FDA-approved, once-a-day HIV prevention pill for people who are HIV-negative. The use of PrEP has been recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for those who are at risk of getting HIV. If taken as prescribed, PrEP is over 90% effective in preventing HIV.1
PrEP can make a big difference in the lives of those who use it, inspiring peace of mind and confidence. Choosing to take PrEP can also be an empowering decision leading to safer sex and the ability to take control of your overall health and wellness.
While the benefits of taking PrEP are substantial, it’s a choice that requires both personal and medical responsibility. Deciding to take PrEP means committing to taking a daily pill, receiving regular health check-ups and getting routine blood tests every three months.
