faqs

1. Do I need to use condoms while I am using PrEP?

It is generally recommended that PrEP be used in combination with other sexual safety methods.

2. Does PrEP work?

PrEP is 92 - 95% effective in preventing HIV, but only if taken daily as prescribed.

3. What should I expect when I start PrEP?

When you're ready, you will need to schedule an appointment with our navigators to get tested to make sure you do not have HIV. It is important to stay connected to your doctor and navigator for follow up testing, refills and discussions about any side effects.

4. How do I pay for PrEP?

In most cases your private insurance can help pay for PrEP. However, we do have assistance programs for those who qualify.

5. Is there a difference between PrEP and PEP?

PrEP is only intended for HIV negative individuals prior to a potential exposure. PEP is Post-Exposure Prophylaxis and is most effective if initiated within 72 hours after possible exposure.
