Sydneyrugbyjock73 saidSpell check please Mr don't be hypocritical. The reasons guys advertise being on Prep do vary but there is an increasing number who advertise it as code for 'I engage in sexual behaviors I would not do if I did not take Prep and in particular, don't bother messsaging me if you insist on using condoms'. The reliability of Prep is at best (assuming it istaken as prescribed) 86% (not 96-100% which are outdated figures from 2 years ago) and if you are not taking the medication as prescribed, their is a sliding scale of risk. Then add other STI (sexually Transmitted Infections) that if present particularly for those not taking Prep as prescribed, which can dramatically reduce Prep as a HIV protection or even render it completely ineffective. This is the truth and no amount of manipulation of 'facts' we'll disprove this statement because it is the truth which is much better than Gillead salesman Timm55 and his manipulation of factsWARNING: TO ANYONE WHO READS SYDNEY'S COMMENTS, HE HAS ZERO KNOWLEDGE OF HIV TREATMENT.
PrEP is 92-100% effective. 92% is from a 2011 study that the CDC quotes, and the CDC has approved PrEP.
If you don't take the medicine there us no benefit. That is obvious.
This statement "Then add other STI (sexually Transmitted Infections) that if present particularly for those not taking Prep as prescribed, which can dramatically reduce Prep as a HIV protection or even render it completely ineffective.
" is totally untrue. STIs have no effect on the effectiveness of PrEP's ability to prevent HIV. PrEP is not effective on other STDs.
If not taken as prescribed under a doctor's supervision, 7 days to ramp up, one pill a day, and 1 pill a day thereafter....it will not be as effective.
If it's the TRUTH, why do you need to say it twice? And as usual no verification, no links. I guess we need to TRUST you?
