Does PrEP Protect Against STD’s

Does PrEP protect against other sexually transmitted infections?

The answer is no. PrEP only protects against HIV. It does not prevent infections with other STI’s.

To help reduce your risk of other infections your doctor will recommend using condoms.

It’s important to get your PrEP & sexual health review every three months.

As part of your regular PrEP appointment we organise a full sexual health screening.

This includes checking for chlamydia and gonorrhoea in the throat, anus, penis or cervix.

We also do a blood test where we check for HIV, kidney function, syphilis, and other potential infections, including Hepatitis C
