Who should NOT take PrEP?

PrEP should NOT be used by people who are HIV positive.

PrEP is usually not needed if:

  • Your partners are HIV positive and on HIV meds with undetectable viral load. When the viral load is this low, HIV positive people can not transmit HIV.
  • If you are happy and able to always use condoms.
  • If you don’t use condoms but your partner is low risk (see PrEP for Women)
