I’m planning on going on PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) – a pill you can take to reduce your risk of contracting HIV. I’m a HIV negative, sexually active queer woman who is in an open relationship with a man. I had heard of PrEP as something that cis gay men could take, but have been reading more about it as I explore sex-positive non-monogamy. I was pretty excited when I discovered that PrEP was for people with vulvas and any a/gender as well. The fact that there’s a pill that I can take daily, that decreases my chance of getting HIV by 99% is great.
