Should I discuss PrEP with my doctor?

If you are considering starting PrEP, it is highly recommended that you discuss this with a doctor at a sexual health clinic. Medical staff will be able to help you decide if PrEP is right for you, and will be able to offer important tests before starting PrEP – such as kidney function tests. Most importantly, they will be able to provide the right kind of HIV test – PrEP should only be started if you know you are HIV negative for sure.
