What is PrEP?

If you have condomless anal sex with multiple partners, we strongly recommend you consider PrEP.

PrEP is an anti-HIV medication that significantly reduces the chances of becoming infected with HIV. If used correctly, PrEP reduces the chances of catching HIV to practically zero. If an HIV negative person who is using PrEP comes into contact with the HIV virus, for example, through having condomless sex with someone who has HIV, they are protected from catching the virus.

If you aren’t protecting yourself with PrEP or condoms, we recommend you test for HIV every month, and have a full STI check up every 3 months. Don’t forget, you can use the PRIME text to walk into Dean Street Express without an appointment. You can also order a home HIV test online here.
