Do I Need PrEP If I’m A Top?

But do I need PrEP If I Am A Top?

Even if you are a top you are still at risk of HIV infection.

The risk of infection anal topping (being the insertive partner in anal sex) without a condom is still significant.

  • 1/900 if you are circumcised
  • 1/160 if you are uncircumcised - that is you still have your foreskin.

HIV is still able to be transmitted to people who are tops in anal sex. While the risk of infection is not as high as receptive anal, bottoming, without a condom, this risk is still present.

If you are a top, and you aren’t using condoms every time for anal, you are at risk of HIV infection.

PrEP can protect you.
