Important announcement to the gays (and straight people) of tumblr that enjoy unprotected sex!
Attention all, if you enjoy condone less sex and are in aware of your status please do get checked ASAP! (I say gays with the growing bareback popularity in gay porn)
For those that are HIV neg, there is a pill called Truvada prescribed by a Dr for “PrEP” and it is basically this:
You take a pill once a day around the same time, just like those that are diagnosed positive, this pill however prevents you from getting HIV.
This isn’t an excuse to go out and have bareback sex.. Sorry but there’s other sti/stds you need to still worry about. The important thing however is that this pill the “PrEP” program is a very amazing way to stop the spread of HIV. All it is is a pill a day to keep the HIV away.
Now you have to go see a Dr about it, they new to test your blood and everything. And you go in every 3-4 months to be checked and see how everything is.in the states most insurance’s cover the medication, because it’s an expensive medication. But they also have a co-pay card that pays up to $200 of the cost. I have several friends that pay nothing at all and a few friends that pay like $8-15 of a copay.
If you have any questions about PrEP, please do not hesitate to ask about it, I can direct you to the website.
Please be a part of preventing the spread of HIV. Know your status and do the right steps necessary to be healthy. If anyone needs someone to talk to even if you just found out you are poz, and have no one to talk to, I’m here for you. I come from a state where any people in my inner circle of friends and even the community has a lot of HIV positive people or negative people starting to take PrEP. If you feel scared and have no one to talk to please do not hesitate to contact me. I’ll be there for you.
