If PrEP does not protect you from HIV 100% why are so many people still taking it?

Am I missing something?

WHAT ARE THE EVIDENCE FOR EFFICACY
 
Men who have sex with men (MSM)
The iPrEx study was a double-blind, placebo-controlled, multi-centre trial. The TDF/FTC treatment group, who took the PrEP regularly, was associated with a 44% reduction in the risk of HIV acquisition (95% CI, 15-63). When blood samples were tested for the medication, there was a 92% reduction in the risk of HIV acquisition in persons with detectable levels of TDF/FTC versus those without.
 
The IPERGAY study was a double-blind, multi-centre trial. The on-demand regimen involved taking 2 tablets of TDF/FTC 2 to 24 hours before sex, 1 tablet a day during periods of sexual risk and for 48 hours (two doses) after sex.
 
The study was stopped early when it showed that 14 people became infected with HIV in the placebo group compared with 2 in the TDF/FTC group, a risk reduction of 86%.
 
The PROUD study was a randomised, open-label trial in England. A total of 23 participants became infected with HIV over the course of the study; three in the daily TDF/FTC group and 20 in the deferred group. This represents a risk reduction of 86%.

Because people like the raw actual feel and connection without boundaries. 

So what's the other best solution? None. 

Its either aids solution been fully solved or external alternative application.

noticed a lot put on-prep in Grindr, i wonder do they eat prep regularly and where do they get their source easily from? Prep is not cheap also

im sure 90 percent is lying....

 

considering the amount of 3k per month price n long doctor consultation and interview process, how can a regular guy in the mid 20s with regular paying jobs afford it?

Guest Just jack off la

Mask is not 100% prevent Covid-19. So why wear it.... 

 

Same reason. Some protection is better than none. 

 

But if people have that mentality. Then should be wear condom. And also on prep. 

 

I first learn about prep from a US gay TV show. I think the couple was on a blind date etc and one of them is hiv. They talked about prep. One was asking what's that. The other was explaining. 

 

So really, prep was for people who is on love with someone who is hiv+. To give them that extra protection. 

 

Now people just prep as the license to fuck dangerously. 

 

Wait till they get hiv or aids or a new sex virus. It is just a matter of when.

Seriously, I am sure no one is paying 3K a month for it.

There are legitimate organisations which assist in the procurement of this medication, to circumvent the "official" price.

Just for reference, one month supply is approx 10USD plus postage

hmmm.... then clinic consultation? hiv testing? if those grindr guys are buying from such links, doesn't it make the process of taking prep more dangerous? since prep is a long term drug to be administered without breaking in between to be effective.

There are non-brand Preps (same drug, just not under the brand Truvada) where you can buy online (from Thailand) and it costs about 300/month but you still need a prescription from a doctor to buy it. It is free in Europe I think. As a drug, it has side effects and might not good for your body in the long run.

When you first start taking it, you may experience nausea for a while. But by the 2nd week, it cleared for me. Just treat it like taking your daily vitamins. 

Love.

Six monthly HIV tests and kidney/liver function tests are recommended.
