Sexual health services at the Pride Clinic encompass 8 key areas:
For individuals at risk of contracting HIV, we offer pre-exposure HIV prophylaxis (PrEP). PrEP is an antiviral medication taken by individuals who are not HIV-positive but are at high risk of exposure to the virus. By taking PrEP consistently as prescribed, it can significantly reduce the risk of HIV transmission. Our healthcare professionals will work closely with you to assess your risk factors and determine if PrEP is an appropriate option for you. We will provide guidance on how to take PrEP effectively and ensure regular monitoring to assess its efficacy and address any concerns you may have.
For individuals who have had potential exposure to HIV and have a negative blood test, we offer Post-exposure HIV prophylaxis (PEP). PEP involves taking antiviral medication after potential exposure to prevent HIV infection. It is important to initiate PEP as soon as possible, ideally within 72 hours after exposure, for maximum effectiveness. Our healthcare professionals will assess your situation, provide guidance on PEP usage, and closely monitor your progress to ensure optimal outcomes.
Our comprehensive STI services include screening for individuals without symptoms, diagnostic testing for STIs, and the treatment of various sexually transmitted infections commonly found in the LGBTQ+ community, such as syphilis, chlamydia, gonorrhea, genital herpes, and genital warts. We also provide vaccinations for HAV, HBV, and HPV, which play a crucial role in preventing sexually transmitted diseases.
