FAQs

What is PrEP?
PrEP (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis) is a pill that provides up to 99% protection from HIV. The drug names are Truvada or Descovy.
Can anyone take PrEP?
PrEP is for any HIV negative person who thinks they may come in contact with HIV through sex or intravenous drug use. Talk with your health care provider to determine if PrEP is right for you.
Is PrEP safe?
PrEP is a safe and highly effective HIV prevention option. Some people may have minor side effects like headaches or nausea, but they typically go away after a few days or weeks.
I am a trans person taking hormone therapy, is it safe for me to take PrEP?
Studies have shown that transgender people can safely take hormone therapy and PrEP. Everyone’s health is different, so discussing PrEP with your health care provider is recommended.
Will PrEP protect me from other STIs?
No. PrEP only protects you from HIV – not from other STIs (sexually transmitted infections) like gonorrhea, chlamydia, or syphilis. Using PrEP and condoms together provides protection from HIV and most STIs.
How often do I need to take PrEP?
You take a PrEP pill once a day.
How can I afford PrEP, and where can I get it?
PrEP is covered by Medicaid and most private insurance plans. PrEP care includes medication, medical appointments, and lab tests. See the Resources section for PrEP navigators and other tools that can help you get financial assistance. Since PrEP is by prescription, you will need to speak with your health care provider, or you can find one by clicking here.
Is there a generic version of PrEP?
PrEP is currently known by two brand names: Truvada and Descovy. Soon, a generic version of PrEP will hit the market – with a different name, from a different drug company. However, the generic version will be exactly the same as Truvada.
