There's much to see here. So, take your time, look around, and learn all there is to know about PrEP.
PrEP does not protect you from sexually transmitted infections (STIs) like syphilis, gonorrhea or chlamydia. Using PrEP and condoms together gives you protection from both HIV and most STIs.
HIV testing is done before starting PrEP because PrEP is only for people who are HIV negative. PrEP also involves HIV testing every three months, periodic STI testing, and being seen by a medical provider.
Many insurance plans, including Medicaid, cover PrEP.
Assistance is also available if you are uninsured or if your co-pay or deductible is too high.
