PrEP and sexually transmitted infections (STIs)

PrEP does not protect against other STIs. Condoms can help prevent many other STIs.

Although STIs are mostly easy to treat, symptoms can sometimes be unpleasant and sometimes serious. This is why regular testing for STIs is a good idea.

The HPV vaccine protects against genital warts and cervical and anal cancers. Ask your clinic or GP about this vaccine.
