PrEP, along with condoms use, is a prevention option to reduce the risk of becoming infected with the HIV virus. The goal of PrEP is to prevent HIV infection if you are exposed to the virus through sexual contact. If you are at risk for getting HIV please speak to your doctor about PrEP. We also provide nPEP. nPEP may be for you if you engage in a behavior that has placed you at risk for acquiring HIV infection. If you think you have been exposed to HIV you must take nPEP within 72 hours of the exposure for the medication to work.
