What is prep?
|Posted On Sep 1, 2019 - 08:10 AM|
As a being Doctor I can throw valuable light on it..
Is called preexposure prophylaxis a preventive n precautionary medicine for HIV infection.
It contains two drugs in it which has to be taken by person with a high risk like homosexuals.
It can prevent oneself from only HIV but not from other STDs like herpes, syphylis, gonorrhoea etc...
Before taking this medicine one has to confirm that he is HIV -ve bcos u don’t have to continue PreP for life time..
It has to be taken only when you know that u are going to connect multiple sexual partner so called polygamous...
If someone is HIV +ve taking PreP increases resistance to these ***..
I hope this will help u..

Thanks niljag. Is it available without prescription? I guess it should be.... And Are there any known side effects of prep?

PreP or any medication shouldn't be taken without doctors consultation.. And it is not available over counter without proper prescription..
Once started, it shouldn't be stopped or terminated again without doctor's advice. And indeed there are side effects of such heavy medicine taking regularly. Even you take crosin regularly, it will be having side effects. PreP will be higher doses now.

So does it mean that before you plan to have unprotected ***, you visit a doctor and start a long term dosage of prep?

PrEP is something you have to start and stop only with Doctors consultation.. And it is only giving protection with HIV(it is again not full 100%).. If one with PrEP still goes for rampant ***, that guy is still open to various other Sexually Transmitted Diseases such as gonorrhea, Syphilis, Herpes and very negligible chances of HIV as well.
PrEP meant for guy who has positive partner.. Positive negative closed relationships.. Unprotected *** with undetectable positive person and negative person on PrEP will have absolutely rarest chance of transmission.

Ok so I guess if a doctor starts you on prep, he will stop it if he's sure you've not contracted HIV?

Guys, PreEP is precautionary measure. Pre Exposure Prophylaxis.. It is for ppl who are willingly exposed to bareback ***. Unprotected *** can be addictive. So such PPL while being negative can start with PrEP. Means blood will be having antiviral medicines already. so even if virus enters will be denatured by medicine.
IMPORTANT NOTE: there is always small chance of getting infection even with PrEP.
So don't think that you start with PrEP then u can have any amout of *** shots.
There is something called PEP.. Post Exposure Prophylaxis.. It is immediate curative measure. Example if in hospital nurse get needle *** which is used on positive patient, or you knw you had unprotected *** with positive person immediately(within some hours window) person can receive PEP.means heavy does of anti HIV medicine.

Further, both this PrEP or PEP meant for purpose other than uninhibited, unlimited ***. It is to save lives and lead a normal life.
Some ppl unfortunately get exposed to HIV, in labs, in hospital.. Some wise ppl in love stand with their positive partner. Such ppl get benefits from such medicines.
PrEP or PEP won't give anyone license to hv *** unlimitedly.
Be wise, educate yourself.
Seems ppl are more curious about it. It is more authentic if you visit a proper counseling services or hospital for it.

PREP is available in India under the name 'Tenvir EM'. It's manufactured by CIPLA Pharmaceuticals. Most medical stores sell it without a prescription, but it's mostly available in big medical stores like the ones outside big government or private hospitals in your city. If the medicine is out of stock, you can ask the chemist to order it for you from the stockist. It's expensive, so most medical stores don't stock it (Rs.2200 for 30 tablets).
Some people may initially suffer from side effects after starting this medicine. But the side effects like headache or nausea go away in 3 or 4 days. Most people suffer from side effects when they start on any medicine. And that's the case with this medicine too. Some people don't get any side effects, so it's how your body reacts to the medication.
You must take 1 tablet daily for 30 days. After that you can stop taking the medicine if your not exposing yourself to the virus. The *** stays in your blood for not more than 48 hours, so there are no reported long term side effects as such. But if you take it for 10 years non-stop, there could be some side effects. We don't know because there aren't many studies on the side effects of taking PREP for such long duration since the *** is relatively new. You must start PREP, 7 or 8 days before having ***. PREP doesn't work after a person is exposed to the virus. You must complete the 30 day course and not miss even a single dose if you think you may have been exposed to the virus. Some people think it's better to suffer from some side effects for a short period, than get HIV. It''s each ones choice.

According to medical studies, PREP has 92 percent success rate, so the best course of action would be to take PREP and practise safe *** too.

instead of spending so much on PREP, practice safe *** n use condoms...
|Posted On Sep 2, 2019 - 05:18 PM|
Can anyone tell if there are possibilities of any STDs if we indulge in mere body play? I am mainly talking about rolling over each other naked with *** in touch but no penetration kind of situation without condom?
Sometimes there are chances of precum oozing out of ***! Can this lead to spread of STDs?
|Posted On Sep 3, 2019 - 06:45 AM|
Yes Ragjuveerkd, you can get some STDs with body contact like Oral and genital Herpes, gonorrhea and Chlamydia. The Herpes virus is present on the surface of the skin of an infected person and it can easily be passed on to someone else through the moist skin that lines the ***, anus, and genitals. The virus may also spread to another individual through other areas of skin, as well as the eyes.
The gonorrhea bacteria are most often passed from one person to another during sexual bodily contact.
Chlamydia is caused by the bacterium Chlamydia. The disease is spread by oral contact.
Also pubic lies can be spread through bodily contact.
Hope this answers your question.
