We know there’s an intimacy that can’t be duplicated when you invite someone in to baste your bird.  But bottom-birds are at the highest risk for contracting HIV.  If condoms aren’t the answer for you – or if you know you inconsistently use them – get PrEP before your turkey gets stuffed.

PrEP is a once-a-day pill you can take to prevent HIV.  Pour all the gravy you want over your meat, and it’s 99% effective at preventing HIV if it’s taken once-a-day.  PrEP can only be prescribed by a doc or medical provider.  There are programs that can help cover the cost of the medication (down to $0 in most cases) – but you’ll still need to use insurance or cash for the medical visits and labs to get the script.  If you have insurance, those costs should be relatively affordable, but if you don’t the initial visit with labs may be $150 with $80 visits every 3 months.  If you’re wondering what PrEP will cost for you and your situation, the best thing you can do is contact a PrEP Navigator at Spectrum Medical.  At no cost, they can walk through all of it with you – and if you’re ready to dive in, they have onsite providers that will get you going same day.  Give one of Spectrum Medical’s PrEP Navigators a call today at 602-604-9500.
