What Is It Like Taking PrEP?
« on: January 02, 2019, 11:42:44 am »
Hi there! I'm a writer for X, a website that offers PrEP prescriptions. I'm trying to create an article that curates what it's like taking PrEP, both from the perspective of HIV-positive people and their non-positive partners. While there's a lot of promotional materials about PrEP out there, I think sometimes the voices of individuals get lost, so I'd like to highlight how PrEP actually affects the average person.

Would anyone be interested in helping me out? All you'd have to do is answer the following questions:

1. How has your life changed since you or your partner started taking PrEP? Have you improved your relationships, increased your sexual encounters, improved your well-being/mental health, etc.?
2. Do you or your partner experience any PrEP side effects?
3. Would you recommend taking PrEP to other people?
4. How long have you or your partner been taking PrEP?
5. What else would you like to add about your PrEP experience?

I really appreciate any and all responses! Thank you so much!
