Pre-exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) for Preventing HIV ?

What is pre-exposure prophylaxis?

Pre-exposure prophylaxis (or PrEP) is when people at high risk for HIV take HIV medicines daily to lower their chances of getting infected.

What we know about PrEP:

Three pill bottles with different medications

PrEP is also recommended for people who've injected drugs in the past 6 months and have shared needles or works or been in drug treatment in the past 6 months.

Because PrEP involves daily medication and regular visits to a health care provider, it may not be right for everyone. And PrEP can cause side effects like nausea in some people, but these generally subside over time. These side effects aren't life threatening.
