Will PrEP Work If I Have An STI?
Do STD’s Block PrEP From Working?
One question I am often asked is if the presence of a sexually-transmitted infection ( STI )mean that PrEP will not work?
This is shown not to be true.*
PrEP will work even if you have other infections in your body.
The mechanism of PrEP is not affected if you have an infection of syphilis, gonorrhoea, chlamydia, or even a chest infection or a cold.
As long as you’re still able to take the PrEP as directed, you will be protected against HIV.
