We jumped in bed with the boys from FJ234 and Dr Ku, for a fun and cheeky trivia about PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis).
Watch them battle to see who knows the most about the HIV prevention method, PrEP. The loser takes off a piece of clothing!
What is PrEP?
PrEP is an acronym that stands for pre-exposure prophylaxis. It involves HIV negative people taking antiretroviral drugs to protect them and prevent HIV infection. When used as prescribed, PrEP is highly effective at preventing HIV infection.
Who is PrEP for?
PrEP is for everyone! If you sometimes have sex without a condom, PrEP is particularly the right thing for you.
How to take PrEP?
PrEP can now be taken daily, on-demand or periodically, so whether you’re gay or bi (cis or trans) you have more ways than ever to protect yourself from HIV.
Each option will suit guys differently based on identity, the type of sex they have, how often they hook-up, and personal preference.
How do I get PrEP?
To get PrEP, you first need to get a script from a doctor. You can visit your local sexual health clinic. There, both the consultation and tests are free and confidential.
How much does PrEP cost?
If you have a Medicare card, you can obtain PrEP from any pharmacy and costs around $41. If you aren’t a Medicare card holder, there are online pharmacies that offer cheaper alternatives such as PAN.ORG.AU.
