About PrEP

 PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) is medicine that reduces your chances of getting HIV from sex or injection drug use. When taken as prescribed, PrEP is highly effective for preventing HIV.

 Are there different types of PrEP? PrEP can be pills or shots.

PrEP shots may be right for you if you do not have HIV and have no known allergy to the medicines in the shot. If you decide to switch from PrEP pills to shots, you’ll need to visit your health care provider regularly to receive your shot. You’ll also need to be tested for HIV prior to each PrEP shot.
