In the past few years, however, a new tool has emerged: PrEP, which is short for Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis. PrEP is a pill that people who are HIV negative can take once –a-day, every day to reduce the risk of transmission of HIV. The Center for Disease Control states that studies have shown PrEP can reduce the risk of getting HIV from sex by 99% when taken daily. PrEP isn’t solely for one type of person – many people of various genders and sexual orientations have found the medication to be an empowering and useful tool in their sexual health. So, what is PrEP? How does it work and how can you find out if PrEP is an option for you? Find out more below!
