Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP)23. October 2016
Protection by using condoms23. October 2016
Therapy as prevention
Treatment as prevention, along with PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) and the condom, is effective protection against HIV infection. Treatment as prevention means that an HIV-positive person cannot transmit HIV if the treatment is successfully applied. The following conditions apply here:
- The viral load (the number of viruses in the blood) of the positive person should have been below the so-called detection limit for at least six months and should be examined by a specialist at regular intervals (approx. every 3 months).
- The HIV medication is taken correctly and regularly.
- Treatment as prevention only protects against HIV, not against other STIs. Condoms can offer additional protection here.
- Condoms, PrEP and therapy as prevention reliably protect you against HIV and can be combined with each other.
Choose what suits you best.
You can get information about the risks of infection with the different sex practices from here.
Get tested at least once a year for HIV, Hep C and other sexually transmitted infections (STI)! Swabs on your dick, ass and throat give you the security to find everything that does not belong there! Vaccinations against Hepatitis A and B are possible.
