Do I Still Need Condoms With PrEP

Do you need to continue using condoms when you’re using PrEP?

PrEP protects against HIV, however, it does not protect against other sexually transmitted infections. Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea, Syphilis, Herpes- these can all still be transmitted while you’re on PrEP. What we know is the use of condoms can reduce the chance of transmission of these. So, we do recommend that people consider using condoms at the same time as PrEP.
