Taking pills can be difficult at times, some people struggle with it.
One good tip is to link taking the pills with something you do every day, like brushing your teeth. If you can, keep your pills near your toothbrush and take immediately after brushing your teeth, for example. You can link it to any daily activity!
Setting a daily alarm on your phone could be useful too.
If taking PrEP On Demand or 4 pills a week, also know as the Ts and Ss (suitable only for anal sex), it’s important you don’t miss any doses.
If you take PrEP daily:
For anal sex, you need 4 pills per week for adequate protection.
For vaginal and frontal sex, you need 6 pills per week for adequate protection.
If you have taken less than this in a week, you may not be protected.
