PrEP (short for Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis) is a new way to prevent HIV for HIV-negative individuals. It’s a prescription medication that, when taken every day, greatly reduces your risk of getting HIV by blocking the virus.
PrEP adds an extra layer of protection, but does not block STDs/STIs like gonorrhea and chlamydia. Only condoms can do that.
