- If you are HIV-negative, PEP and PrEP can help you stay that way.
- If you are HIV-positive, PEP and PrEP can help protect your partners.
PrEP is a daily pill that can help keep you HIV-negative as long as you take it every day.
- Ask your doctor if PrEP (Pre-exposure Prophylaxis) may be right for you.
- Condoms give you additional protection against HIV, other sexually transmitted infections, and unintended pregnancy.
If you are HIV-negative and think you were exposed to HIV, immediately go to a clinic or emergency room and ask for PEP (Post-exposure Prophylaxis).
- PEP can stop HIV if started within 36 hours of exposure.
- You continue taking PEP for 28 days.
Many insurance plans including Medicaid cover PEP and PrEP. Assistance may be available if you are uninsured. Visit NYC Health’s website to find out where to get PrEP or PEP in New York City.
This is such a giant step that barely any people know about it seems, so amazing to see progress in the treatment of HIV
I honestly thought this might be exaggeration but the CDC says that PrEP is 92% effective. Damn. Damn.
reblogging because this deserves waaaay more attention D:

i need feminism because i just found this in a magazine aimed at 8-13 year old girls and im going to throw up
okay so let me tell you a thing i just got some old seventeen magazineslike older than my mom one of them is from ‘48 and talks about a group of students making history because they are the first students to travel abroad for study since the war THE WAR WW2!!! and they had a whole section in the next page about being super confident and showing your friends that you are awesome and showing everyone what you can do and to be proud of it because you can contribute to society! like why is it that in some aspects i feel like we’ve gone backwards instead of forwards in feminism?
