PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) is a once-a-day medication that is extremely effective at preventing someone who is HIV[-] from getting HIV.

PrEP is safe to take and it really works!

Taking PrEP doesn't mean someone is a whore or a slut.
PrEP is about taking control of your health regarding HIV.

To be most effective, PrEP should be taken every day as prescribed.

PrEP only prevents HIV.  Other STIs are still out there—Gonnorhea, Clamydia, Syphilis, Herpes, etc.—so for the best protection against HIV and STIs, condoms + PrEP is recommended.


PEP (post-exposure prophylaxis) is a medication that someone who is HIV[-] can take within 72 hours of a possible HIV exposure (like condomless sex) to reduce their chances of becoming HIV[+]. Because PEP is so time sensitive, it may not work as well as PrEP at preventing HIV..
