Is PrEP only for gay men?
The answer is no, PrEP is not just for gay men, it’s for all people who are at potential risk of HIV infection. This includes men who have sex with men, trans men, trans women, as well as female heterosexuals. For women or owners of cervixes, we recommend that people are taking Truvada for at least 21 days before they will have levels that offer the best protection against HIV.
It’s important that you talk to your doctor to make sure that you are getting the correct information when it comes to the dosage of PrEP, and how long you need to be taking it before you are offered full protection against HIV.
