Buy PrEP Online - PrEP (Pre-exposure prophylaxis) is a treatment for people who are HIV-negative and are a higher risk of contracting the disease.

Before taking PrEP, you need to check your HIV status.

You should also regularly be tested for HIV while taking PrEP to ensure you are clear and that the drugs are working.

People at higher risk of contracting the disease include:

  • People in serodiscordant relationships, in which one partner is HIV-positive and the other is HIV-negative.
  • People who have unprotected anal or vaginal sex with many partners.
  • People who have been recently infected with another STD.
  • Those who used IV (injection) drugs and shared needles in the past 6 months.
  • Those who have unprotected sex with someone who used IV drugs in the past 6 months.

When taken daily, PrEP can reduce your chances of contracting HIV through sex by more than 90%. For PrEP to be most effective, it must be taken at the same time each day without missing doses.

PrEP does not protect against other sexually transmitted diseases such as chlamydia, gonorrhoea, syphilis or herpes. You should use condoms consistently to protect yourself from unwanted infections.

PrEP is not a form of contraception and may not be suitable for women who are pregnant, breastfeeding or plan on becoming pregnant in the near future. If you unsure about how PrEP may affect you, talk to your healthcare provider.

PrEP is not a HIV cure. While it can prevent the virus from replicating inside the body, it does not treat those who are HIV-positive. However, it may be used alongside another treatment called PEP (Post-exposure prophylaxis) which is used to suppress HIV in those who have become infected.

PrEP is not suitable for everyone. You should request an appointment with your GP or a sexual health provider to determine whether PrEP is right for you.

 

How does PrEP work?

PrEP works by inhibiting an enzyme (HIV reverse transcriptase) which is needed by the virus to make copies of itself in the body. Without this enzyme, the virus cannot infect the body. However, PrEP is not always 100% effective against the prevention of HIV.
