CheckPoint - PrEP on Demand guide
Have you stopped taking your PrEP during the lockdown? It's pretty normal if you have. A lot of queers have gone off PrEP due to the Covid-19 pandemic. However, if you have and find yourself in a situation where you might want to arrange a date - fear not. Our friends over at Checkpoint Zurich have created this handy video guide for cis gay men who want to take PreP on demand.
If you’re a cis man and want to have sex straight away, you can take a DOUBLE dose of PrEP (i.e. two tablets) 2 to 24 hours BEFORE sex. You can then continue with either daily dosing or event-based PrEP. It’s really important to take the AFTER sex doses! If you’re a cis man, carry on taking PrEP for another two sex-free days (so if you last had sex on Saturday, take PrEP on Sunday and Monday). It’s then safer to stop. For everyone else – take a daily dose of PrEP for seven days BEFORE starting to have sex.
