Looking for PrEP? Here is where you can easily get them

Having understood that PrEP (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis) is a pill taken daily by people who are HIV negative to protect them from HIV infection, many are not aware where they can get the pills.

However, the good news is that you can simply get them at all chemists and clinics located in the CBD or your local hood pharmacies .

This however does not mean that they should be abused in any way simply because they are available.

Before deciding on whether you need this pill, one needs to first confirm that they are HIV negative and then proceed with buying of the pill which will act as ‘the morning after pill’ but in this case it will play the role of protecting you from getting HIV.

If you are HIV positive then PrEP is not for you. What you need to do is stick to your medicine (ARV’s) which will be helpful in keeping you healthy and strong.

Remember, it takes about 1 week (after starting your 1 pill per day) for the PrEP to reach maximum levels your system and give you full protection.

Also, if you are on PrEP and taking it correctly, you need not worry about a sexual partner’s HIV status because you are protecting your own negative status by taking PrEP.
