HIV PrEP is a medicine that stops you getting HIV.
Is HIV PrEP for me?
Trans and non-binary people who have penetrative anal or frontal sex without a condom may be at increased risk of HIV. Frontal sex is an alternative term for vaginal sex used by some trans and non-binary people. PrEP can help to protect you from HIV.
PrEP can be used with all forms of contraception.
HIV PrEP is safe for trans or non-binary people who are taking hormones. PrEP is effective regardless of any gender-affirming surgeries that you’ve had.
