KEEP IN MIND

  • Only people who are HIV-negative should use PrEP or PEP.
  • PrEP and PEP are available by prescription from a healthcare provider, you can also get PEP at your local emergency room.
  • PrEP or PEP do not protect against other STI’s or pregnancy, and do not cure HIV.
  • You must be tested for HIV and have a documented negative test result before starting PrEP.
  • PrEP is more than just taking a pill every day, it also involves frequent medical visits and lab tests to check for HIV, other STI’s, and any changes in kidney health.
  • PrEP does not have to be taken forever and can be stopped at any time under the supervision of your healthcare provider.
  • PEP is taken for 28 days.
