Let's Talk about HIV Prevention

PrEP

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

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.
