What is PrEP?
PrEP means pre-exposure prophylaxis - It is a pill that you take before and after unprotected sex to prevent you catching HIV.
How can I get PrEP?
PrEP is now available free of charge from our service for anyone who needs it.
- If you are having unprotected sex with someone who has HIV, but they are sticking to their HIV treatment and are told they are ‘undetectable’ then you have zero risk of catching HIV from them. You do not need PrEP
- If you are having unprotected sex with someone who is at high risk of having HIV, but not known to be taking effective HIV treatment then we would encourage you to take PrEP.
If you believe you need PrEP and want to access it from us, then book an appointment under the symptoms clinic and in the comments section note that you want to discuss PrEP.
