PrEP stands for Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis. It is used in the HIV field to describe the use of anti-HIV medication by people who are not HIV+. The medication helps prevent you from becoming infected with HIV by interfering with the virus’ ability to replicate itself in your body if you become exposed to it. The treatment consists of taking one pill each day.
PrEP is not appropriate for everyone. It has some documented side effects, cannot be taken together with certain medications, requires pre-screening with labs including HIV screen and Hepatitis screen prior to initiation as well as ongoing labs to screen for liver and kidney health at least every 3 months. If you are interested in learning more, or if you want to find out if you are a good candidate for PrEP, call and make an appointment with one of our providers. The medication may be covered by your insurance plan, and financial assistance programs are available from the mediation manufacturer.
Fertility services are available for sero-discordant couples (one partner is HIV+ and one is negative). Counseling around PrEP services is also available. Learn more about these services here.
