Meet Our HIV Navigator

HIV preexposure prophylaxis (PrEP) is the process when a person without HIV takes antiretroviral medications to prevent the acquisition of HIV. The goal of HIV PrEP is to prevent new HIV infections. Among people who take HIV PrEP medications as prescribed, the medications are more than 90% effective for preventing sexual acquisition of HIV and approximately 70% effective in preventing HIV acquisition among people who inject drugs.

Individuals exposed to a STI from a sexual partner should be seen by a medical provider for testing and treatment. Many patients are able to receive treatment for certain STIs, such as chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis, before their lab results return. All recent sexual partners should be encouraged to get tested as well, if applicable.

DoxyPEP (Doxycycline Post-Exposure Prophylaxis) is a medication taken after sex to prevent sexual transmission of bacterial STIs, such as chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, and mycoplasma genitalium. DoxyPEP, which is currently only recommended for men who have sex with men (MSM) and transgender women, must be taken within 72 hours of a sexual encounter to be effective.
