Sexwork and PrEP

Sexwork and PrEP

When sex is your job, or you occasionally get paid for sex with money or items, you can risk contracting hiv. You can protect yourself from hiv with PrEP.

What is PrEP?

PrEP is short for Pre-Exposure Prophylaxes. This means taking hiv-medication to prevent you get infected.
Aside from this, wearing a condom is still important to prevent you from getting other STI’s, like gonorrhea or syphilis. You will take the PrEP every day.

Not detectable = not transmissible

When you have hiv and take medication for it, the virus is often not detectable in your blood after six months. When this happens you can’t infect others, even when having sex without a condom. This is called n=n, which means: Not detectable = not transmissible.

You do have to keep taking your hiv-medication as instructed, and get checked out in hospital regularly.
