Good afternoon from YorSexual health and Yorkshire Mesmac! Our combined podcast EE By GUM, is now available to listen.
What is PrEP?
PrEP means Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis, and it’s the use of anti-HIV medication that keeps HIV negative people from becoming infected. PrEP is approved by the FDA and has been shown to be safe and effective. A single pill taken once daily, it is highly effective against HIV when taken every day. The medication interferes with HIV’s ability to copy itself in your body after you’ve been exposed. This prevents it from establishing an infection and making you sick.
Here are some helpful links for PrEP

PrEP Impact Trial
YorSexualHealth has been participating in the Trial but places are now full. Please access the Trial website for sites still recruiting https://www.prepimpacttrial.org.uk/
If you obtain your own PrEP we can support and monitor in the same way as we do for Trial patients. Please attend clinic if you would like to access monitoring or discuss PrEP further.
If you are interested in participating in this study or would like further information, please speak to a member of the clinic staff.
