WHAT TO DO: GET PREP
PrEP is for people who are HIV negative and vulnerable to getting HIV. If you’re not sure whether or not PrEP is the right choice for you, check out this simple web survey that will help you figure it out. Once you’ve learned a little bit about PrEP, have a conversation with your healthcare provider. If you decide to try out PrEP, your provider will give you an HIV test. If you’re prescribed PrEP, it takes 7-20 days for the pills to be effective.
WHERE TO GET PREP
If you have a regular healthcare provider, your best bet is to talk to them and see about getting a prescription. But if you don’t have a regular healthcare provider — or you feel weird talking to them about this issue — use our PrEP map to find providers who prescribe PrEP in your area.
