Who is PrEP for?

PrEP is for anyone who is HIV-negative and at risk of contracting HIV from sexual activities or intravenous drug use. PrEP is especially recommended for those who don't always use condoms, had an STD in the last 6 months, don't know the HIV status of their partner(s), or have a partner(s) who is HIV positive.

Paying for PrEP

PrEP is covered under most insurances and Medicaid. 

Uninsured or under-insured? We will work with you to find payment options. 

PrEP Side Effects

Only about 9% of people taking PrEP experience side effects. The most common PrEP side effects include weight loss, headaches, and stomach pain. These usually subside after 1 month.

PrEP & Condoms

If you do not use condoms but take PrEP perfectly you will be more than 90% protected from HIV during sexual activities- which is great! However, PrEP does not protect you from other STIs like gonorrhea, chlamydia, or syphilis nor does PrEP prevent pregnancy.  PrEP for sex with both!

Is it safe to take Birth Control & PrEP?

Yes, research shows that hormone-based birth control drugs do NOT interact with PrEP.

PrEP: Preventive pill before exposure
PEP: Emergency pill after exposure

PEP is a post-exposure prevention method that’s used after you may have been exposed to HIV. If you’ve recently taken PEP after being exposed to HIV, consider adding PrEP to your daily routine. PEP depends on you being able to determine that you may have been exposed to HIV within 72 hours of sexual contact and access care. PrEP is a pre-exposure prevention method which means that you’re constantly protected, before exposure to HIV even happens! PrEP is a once-daily pill regimen that is a more effective means of protecting yourself from HIV.
