PREP problem with STD
If you are on PREP and do bareback, then STD has chance.
How do you think of that?
In the UK, you get PREP prescription every 3 months, which means every 3 months you go the GUM clinic and get tested for STDs. So I find some comfort in that, as when speaking to people about PREP and they are not on it, they sometimes mention they know they are clean, but have never been tested for any STDs or visited a GUM clinic.
That's an excellent point: people on PrEP have to visit the Dr (aka clinic) on a regular basis and undergo regular, routine testing - which includes a blanket of STD screenings in addition to HIV - which, if nothing else tells you that someone on PrEP is legitimately aware of their "sexual health"...
IMHO, people who say "they're clean" and haven't had an STD screening or an HIV test in over 6-months are self-delusional.... they don't know, and they couldn't know! HIV doesn't present SYMPTOMS for sometimes several years! All the while, you have it and you spread it!
In my own personal dating, I'd strongly prefer someone who is either on PrEP or who is poz-undetectible and on HIV meds to someone who is "just winging it"...
That's me - and I don't posit it as being for everyone - but, that's my thought process!
