Meet with your medical provider to get your PrEP prescription and protect yourself from getting HIV.

Ask Me About: PREP or PEP

PrEP, also known as pre-exposure prophylaxis, is a pill that can be prescribed for people at risk of getting HIV. PrEP is a single pill that, if taken daily, can reduce your chances of getting HIV by over 90%.

Post Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP) means taking antiretroviral medicines after a potential HIV exposure. PEP must be started within 72 hours after exposure. PEP is highly effective in preventing HIV.

First, speak to a PrEP Counselor or make an appointment with your health care provider to see if PrEP is right for you. Second, speak to your health care provider about starting PrEP. Third, take lab test that includes an HIV test before you start taking PrEP to make sure you are a good candidate for PrEP.

If you’re prescribed PrEP but cannot afford the medication, there are assistance programs that provide Free PrEP or assitance with insurance co-pays. Contact us for more information. For PEP, go to the nearest emergency room or urgent care provider to start a PEP treatment regimen within 72 hours after being exposed with HIV.

When taken as directed, PrEP and PEP help protect you from the HIV virus - but not other STDs. See the STD education page to learn more about STDs and prevention methods AND be sure to also use a condom!
