Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP)
PrEP is the use of HIV medication, taken regularly, to keep HIV negative people from becoming infected. PrEP is now FREE from most NHS sexual health services across the UK. Alternatively, you can buy PrEP privately and/ or online but you are strongly advised to connect with your sexual health service for monitoring.
Condoms and antibiotics
PrEP is one of a combination of strategies that can reduce the risk of getting HIV, though condoms are still the most effective method of preventing HIV and other sexually transmitted infections (STI). Even if PrEP is the game-changer many believe it is, it offers zero protection against other STIs which are on the rise at a time when some antibiotics are failing.
