At PrEPrx we offer many different HIV prevention options to suit your needs!
Daily PrEP means taking one pill everyday. It is best taken at the same time each day so it becomes part of your routine. However, if you forget, then taking it a few hours late or early is completely fine.
On Demand PrEP:
While Daily PrEP is an easy-to-remember option we also offer On-Demand PrEP which is a 2-1-1 strategy where clients take two pills 2-24 hours before sex, 1 pill 24-hours later, and 1 pill 24-hours after that. This highly effective method is a great option for those with only one potential HIV exposure per week. Our clients tell us that they love the flexibility in this
method, especially during times where their sex is irregular.
PIP "PEP in Pocket":
We are pleased to announce PEP-In-Pocket (PIP) service. While PrEP is taken daily on an ongoing basis to prevent HIV, PEP (Post Exposure Prophylaxis) is short-term therapy for people after exposure to HIV.
PEP can prevent HIV transmission by taking HIV medications as soon as possible after potential exposure to HIV, and it must be started within 72 hours of the possible exposure. To be effective, PEP medication needs to be taken as prescribed over the course of 28 days, with no further exposure to HIV while taking PEP. If the PEP medication is not taken consistently, there may not be enough medication in the body to block HIV.
PEP is for emergency situations. PEP-In-Pocket (PIP) is a good for for people who don’t know when they might be exposed to HIV. This way they can have the medication in advance if, for example, a condom breaks, rather than having to visit an emergency department after an exposure.
