There is medication to prevent HIV? Yes!
PrEP is for people who do not have HIV and want added protection. It is available by prescription.
In pill form, PrEP must be taken every day – like birth control but for HIV prevention. A new injectable form of PrEP has been approved by the FDA and is expected to be available soon.
While PrEP is highly effective in preventing HIV, it does not protect against other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Condoms protect against most other STDs, as well as HIV and pregnancy.
A health care provider can help decide if PrEP is a good fit for you.
