Use Of Condoms While On PrEP

One of the more common questions for people who are going on to PrEP is, does this mean that I can stop using condoms? We know that condoms have a role in all sexual health, not just HIV prevention. Taking PrEP every day does greatly reduce the risk of HIV infection. Adding condoms into the mix can also help reduce the chance of transmission of some STIs. However, it is important to know that we understand that people are going on to PrEP because the condom is not always used when it comes to sexual encounters. However, we can encourage that as part of a full comprehensive sexual health protection that condoms can be a useful part of this.
