Learn why you should talk to a healthcare provider about PrEP and if it's an option for you.
Let's break it down: PrEP stands for pre-exposure prophylaxis. That means routinely taking prescription medicine before you're exposed to HIV to help reduce your chances of getting it.
In fact, the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) recommends that ALL sexually active adults and adolescents be informed about PrEP for prevention of HIV.
Just remember, PrEP doesn't protect against other STIs (sexually transmitted infections), so be sure to use condoms and other healthy sex practices.
