so ya know how ya’ll like to have raw sex while on prep?
well i might need ya’ll to stop.
another person just contracted hiv because of it.
a foxholer sent me this…
The sixth case of a man acquiring HIV while adhering to PrEP has been confirmed by healthcare experts over the weekend. He is thought to be the first man in California, and third man in the U.S. to contract HIV will taking Truvada as directed.
The unnamed man started taking PrEP in late 2016 and was HIV negative when tested the next three times at three, six, and ten months. Blood tests confirmed at this point that he had been adhering to the medication.
But slightly over a year after starting PrEP, he tested HIV positive. Immediately, he was placed on the appropriate medication; since then, his viral load has consistently remained suppressed.
The strain of HIV he acquired was identified with people who previously took HIV meds, but no longer do. Then it came to light that his main partner, who is HIV positive, had gone off his HIV medication. His partner was tested to have the same strain and has since resumed taking medication.
Despite this being the sixth case of a man contracting HIV while on PrEP, experts and medical professionals still firmly believe that PrEP is more effective than solely wearing condoms.
i don’t care what they say/font/smoke signal…
NOT WIT IT
even though it looks and feels better,
you can’t be giving it to everyone raw.
i’d still use condoms while on prep.
i’d treat it like birth control with vixens.
it’s a “just in case”,
rather than “there’s a force field in my booty”.
stay safe foxhole.
lowkey: i don’t think folks gonna stop raw sexing anytime soon,
even the straights.
