How do I remember to take my PrEP every day?
I have one of these pill boxes that I fill every 2 weeks.
This is part of my daily routine so I’m prepared for whenever my puppy play time might arise.
PrEP protects me from HIV-1 infection and removes the biggest fear of any encounter I might have.
On PrEP too? Post a pic of your pill and tag #showyourpill.
In today’s world, unprotected sex means condomless or PrEPless.
This daily pill helps protect you from HIV infection. Studies show that it’s pretty effective at keeping you safe.
The original pill, called Truvada, made by Gilead, is available in the States while generic versions, like the one I’m holding, are available in other countries now.
Taking the pill doesn’t mean you are a slut, it just means you are worried enough about sex that you want to protect yourself.
Taking PrEP? Please post a pic like this one and tag #ShowYourPill to help share how important this drug is right now.
“PrEP” is the general name for the drugs that prevent you from getting HIV. You take it daily and it protects your body if you are accidentally exposed to HIV.
There are several companies around the world that make the drug now and they all call it different things.
In the United States the main drug company is Gilead. The name of their drug is Truvada. Gilead was the first company to release the drug.
There are generic versions of available in other countries that are sold under different names.
Technically speaking, PrEP is very similar to the drug that people take when they are HIV positive, except that a positive person takes a different formulation.
If you are sexually active and you worry about getting HIV then PrEP a drug you should talk to your doctor about.
Under 25 and feeling invincible? You might think you’re not in the high risk category for HIV infection, but the truth is that 15 to 25 year olds are at the highest risk.
Perhaps it’s because you guys are just experimenting with sex and don’t think you’ll catch anything the first year or so.
Asking your doctor about PrEP means you’ll have to admit your sexual activity, and you might not be ready for that yet.
If you’re unwilling to seek out PrEP at this time then make sure you follow all other methods of protecting yourself.
Those of us taking PrEP and TasP to help prevent the further spread of HIV are fighting the stigma of being on such drugs.
Telling someone you are on TasP leads to immediate negative judgment because you have HIV.
Telling someone you are on PrEP leads to immediate judgement that you are a slut.
The reasons why we take these medications are our own. These drugs have been available for more than 5 years and everyone at even the slightest risk of further HIV infection should be on them.
I show my daily pill to let people judge me for who I am in hopes it will instigate an educational conversation.
Will you help fight the stigma? Tag #ShowYourPill when you post your own photo of your daily meds.
According to Dawn Smith, MD, from the CDC, approximately 1,450,000 Americans are at risk of HIV infection but only 8% of them are taking PrEP.
I urge you to join me with the #ShowYourPill campaign to bring more awareness to this drug and start a conversation with your friends as to why you are taking it. Give them guidance for how to get on it too.
Fight the stigma of taking PrEP for prevention. The stigma is so strong that even my uneducated doctor asked “why would you take that if you are married” and then when I told him about our open relationship he said “why don’t you just wear a condom?” Ive long since left that doctor, but the point is that if a doctor makes comments like that then we still have a huge uphill battle to fight against stigma associated with fighting HIV.
Be #ProudOnPrEP and #ShowYourPill to be a leader among your friends.
No spikes are allowed on the mosh mat but when you’re horny like this all the time you should be prepared for anything.
I’m balancing my PrEP pill on my nose to show you that I really do take this pill daily.
#ShowYourPill to the world to support HIV education and further prevention.
💋:ONE- Super Studs Latex Condoms
👄: Latex/Sensatex (no animal products)
🍆:⭐️⭐️⭐️ (3 Stars)
🍑:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ (4 Stars)
🍡: Average to Medium Fit
✍🏼:Looking for a little something new to spice up your special time? The ONE Super Studs is a great choice! The extra large studs on these condoms are extremely satisfying for her, and little something extra for him. These latex condoms are average sized, with a contoured shape, but are not considered uncomfortable for a fairly larger man either. The ONLY downfall we’ve noticed with these is that the studs can cause some minor imitation for the female partner IF the session goes into overtime, or is on the rougher side. Otherwise, the ONE Super Studs condom gets two thumbs up from the ladies, and a green light for go from the men.💋 Have you tried ONE Super Studs?

It’s estimated that 36.7 million people globally have HIV and 30% of them don’t know their status.
Taking a daily PrEP pill will protect you from the accidental “I didn’t know my status” infections.

I wouldn’t mind a visit from a bunny furry overnight. I’d expect the bunny to leave his head on the entire time we tried to make little bunnies.
Taking daily PrEP allows me to be prepared for those random encounters no matter when they happen.
PrEP is helping to stop the spread of HIV and it allows us to have safer play time without the stress and worry of what might happen.
PrEP only protects against HIV, so it’s still possible to catch other STIs. Protect yourself how you see fit. For me, that’s this little blue pill.
Who wants to help me play with my pill?
There’s always a chance for random play, which is why you should protect yourself from HIV infection with a dose of daily PrEP.
This single pill can help prevent the spread of HIV, maybe even wipe it out within a generation.
Don’t be embarrassed to ask your doctor about PrEP, it’s for more than just sexually active, high risk people.
If you have it, please #ShowYourPill.
It’s the new “pill.” While you don’t need a month to get ready with this pill, you do have to take PrEP several days ahead of time for it to start working in your system.
