Pre Exposure Prophylaxis - HIV Prevention Pill Explained

Pre-exposure prophylaxis (also known as PrEP) is a medication taken to reduce the risk of contracting HIV. It is for individuals who do not have HIV but are at high risk for contracting the disease. Truvada and Descovy are the most common HIV PrEP pills used today.

Studies have shown that PrEP is highly effective for preventing HIV when taken as prescribed.

According to the CDC website, pre exposure prophylaxis:

  • Reduces the risk of getting HIV from sex by about 99%
  • Reduces the risk of getting HIV from injection drug use by at least 74%

To maximize the effectiveness of the PrEP pill you should take the medication as prescribed. Additionally, PrEP only protects against HIV so condom use is still important to maintain good sexual health and defend against other STDs.
