Hiya,

Nothing specific to Truvada as far as I'm aware.

Now, there are four main types (causes) of thyroiditis, your doctor should be working with you to understand what is going on and treating you accordingly.

Do hope you feel better soon. Take care.

Here's what you need to know to avoid HIV infection:
Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, every time, no exceptions. Continue taking PrEP as an additional layer of protection against HIV

Keep in mind that some sexual practices which may be described as safe in terms of HIV transmission might still pose a risk for transmission of other easier to transmit STI's, so please do get fully tested regularly.

Also, note that it is possible to have an STI and show no signs or symptoms and the only way of knowing is by testing.

Kind regards

Jim
