Dr. Flash covers how condoms and PrEP can work together to protect against HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).
In addition to condoms, PrEP offers those who do not have HIV another powerful means of protection.
PrEP only protects against HIV. Condoms provide protection against other STDs, in particular gonorrhea and chlamydia.
Since twice-yearly STD screening is part of maintaining a PrEP prescription, going on PrEP can help you more promptly diagnose and treat any STDs you may contract.
