Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis or PrEP

Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) is medication that people who are at very high risk of catching HIV, can take to protect themselves from HIV and is now available on the NHS free

Depending on the type of sex you have and your medical history there are different ways that you can take PrEP, and it is extremely effective if taken correctly. 

  • Not everyone can take PrEP, for example some medications can interact badly, and it won’t work if you are already HIV-positive. 
  • It is important to remember it will not protect you against the other sexually transmitted infections (STIs) such as gonorrhea or syphilis.
  • People who take PrEP are required to have 3-monthly checkups for STIs and regular tests to ensure their kidneys are working well. 

To get your 3 monthly online STI check-up, register and request a kit from Sexual Health London.

If you would like to find out more about PrEP, discuss starting PrEP, or be monitored while taking PrEP , please call our sexual health triage line on 0203 312 1225 to arrange to speak to one of the team.

We also recommend that you read the this PrEP leaflet on the i-Base website
