I think that people forget that condoms protect you from more than just pregnancy.
And there is no morning after pill for HIV.
ACTUALLY THERE IS.
It’s called post exposure prophylaxis.
If you’ve had unprotected sex and are afraid of possibly being at risk for HIV, please go to the emergency room and ask about POST EXPOSURE PROPHYLAXIS.
Works for up to 48 – 72 hours after exposure to HIV.
I wouldn’t need this but this is actually really cool and I’d like to share it in case anyone might need it.
If you see this on your dash REBLOG REBLOG REBLOG!!!! You could save a life
SAVE A LIFE ????????????????????????????????
There’s a FDA approved daily medication called Truvada, or the PrEP treatment, that is 92-99% effective in preventing the contraction of HIV.
Private insurance and Medicaid cover it. You can also get it for free in a lot of high risk cities like Atlanta, NY, and San Fransisco.
It’s the same cocktail they give to medical professionals who have had contaminated needle sticks/blood splashes from potentially infected blood. Very effective.
Please boost. You may think you’ll never need it, but you never know what might happen in your life
But still, people, just use a fucking condom please. There’s other STD’s and a condom is cheaper than those treatments. Use a condom, but know these things exist in worst case scenario.
Indeed, use a condom. Whilst PEP is waaaay better than contracting HIV / AIDS, it’s not 100% effective, and for many the side effects are pretty lousy. It’s not a quick fix like the morning after pill, but it is there for emergencies :)
