Who can benefit from PrEP?

Gay or bisexual men or transgender women who are at high risk for HIV
Heterosexual people who do not regularly use condoms and are at high risk for HIV infection
People who inject drugs or share drug paraphernalia

People who had condomless intercourse with an HIV partner or unknown HIV status
People who recently shared needles or had a needle-stick injury

About HIV Prevention

Risk of HIV transmission

(per 10,000 exposures)

  • Receptive anal intercourse: 138
  • Insertive anal intercourse: 11
  • Receptive penile-vaginal sex: 8
  • Insertive penile-vaginal sex: 4
  • Oral intercourse: Low

Can you get HIV from oral sex?

In general, there is little to no risk of getting or transmitting HIV from oral sex. Theoretically, transmission of HIV is possible if an HIV-positive man ejaculates in his partner's mouth during oral sex. However, the risk is still very low.
Factors that may increase the risk of transmitting HIV through oral sex include oral ulcers, bleeding gums, genital sores, and the presence of other STDs, which may or may not be visible. While there is little risk of getting HIV from oral sex, using a barrier can further reduce your risk of getting or transmitting HIV.

How to reduce the risk of HIV

  1. Use condoms correctly every time you have sex, including oral intercourse
  2. Reduce your number of sexual partners
  3. Take PrEP daily if you are at risk for HIV
  4. Take PEP within 72 hours of being exposed to HIV
  5. Get an STI test
  6. Encourage an HIV-positive partner to get and stay on treatment

Importance of Abstinence

Having fewer partners lowers your chances of having sex with someone who has HIV or another STD. Abstinence means avoiding oral, vaginal, or anal sex and is the only 100% effective way to prevent HIV or other STDs.

  1. Choose less risky sexual behaviors
  2. Receptive anal sex is the riskiest type of sex for getting HIV

FAQ for PrEP/PEP Treatment Online

PrEP is taken before HIV exposure by people who are at risk of getting HIV. PEP means taking HIV medicines after being potentially exposed to HIV in order to prevent infection.
No, you should not. PrEP medication doesn't give you any protection against other STDs like gonorrhea and chlamydia.
You must take PrEP daily. You can stop your PrEP prescription if your risk of getting an HIV infection becomes low or your HIV partner has initiated antiretroviral therapy (ART).
7 days for receptive anal sex, 21 days for receptive vaginal sex and injection drug use. No data are yet available for insertive anal or insertive vaginal sex.
No, PrEP is for pre-exposure; it is not a treatment for HIV. You should get PEP (post-exposure prophylaxis) instead if you’ve recently been exposed to HIV during unprotected sex or through injection drug use.
Most people experience no side effects, but it is possible to develop nausea, headache, diarrhea, fatigue, or stomach pain as a result of PrEP. Most symptoms disappear shortly. Be sure to contact your online doctor if you are experiencing severe or persistent symptoms.
PEP prescription medication should be taken every day for 28 days.
PEP is very effective at preventing HIV infections if started no more than 72 hours after sex with an HIV-positive person, but it is not 100 percent effective. It cannot guarantee that you won’t develop HIV. To maximize the efficacy of the medicine, PEP should be started as soon as possible after suspected exposure to HIV.
Some people report side effects such as nausea, headache, and diarrhea. Severe complications are rare.
