There are now more ways to protect yourself from HIV and STIs.
Sometimes different situations call for different strategies.

Make your own choice.

Discuss your choice with your sex partner & respect each others choices.


Check out the available prevention strategies below or do the test.

You are in a monogamous relationship, so you and your boyfriend don’t have other sex-partners. 

Get yourself vaccinated against Hepatitis A & B. These are very serious infectious viruses which are easy to prevent by vaccination.

By using a condom you are always in charge of your own protection without depending on anyone else.

Undetectable = Untransmittable.
If you have HIV and are on effective treatment and achieved an undetectable viral load for 6 months it cannot be passed on.

PrEP can give you extra protection from getting HIV. It is a pill you take daily or just before / after sex and can lower the risk of getting HIV by over 90%. 

PEP is a last resort HIV prevention strategy that can be used after being exposed to the virus to reduce the risk of becoming infected. 

What else can you do?

While condoms, PrEP, U=U, PEP and vaccination are key strategies to help you and your sex partners stay healthy, there are other ways you can do this.
