Let's Talk about HIV Prevention


PrEP: HIV Prevention with a daily pill.  PrEP stands for pre-exposure prophylaxis. It’s a pill that reduces the risk of infection for HIV negative people. Our expert providers can help you decide if PrEP makes sense for you.

PEP is a series of pills you start taking after you’ve been exposed to HIV that lowers your chances of getting HIV. You have to start PEP within 72 hours (3 days), after you were exposed to HIV for it to work.  PEP is only for emergencies — it doesn’t take the place of using condoms or PrEP.

How can I prevent HIV?

HIV is spread through semen, vaginal fluids, blood, and breast milk. Protect yourself by using condoms every time you have sex, and don’t share needles with anyone. You can also ask your doctor about PrEP — a daily pill that helps prevent HIV.
