How to get prescribed truvada?

Are you feeling like your sex life is as dull as a doorknob? Or maybe you’re worried about getting HIV from that one-time fling with Brad from the bar. Well, fear not my friends! Because in this article, we are going to discuss how to get prescribed Truvada and spice up your life!

What is Truvada?

First things first, let’s talk about what the heck Truvada even is. Truvada is an antiretroviral drug that can help prevent HIV infection by blocking a key enzyme the virus needs to replicate. It’s often used in combination with other drugs for treating those who have already contracted HIV or AIDS.

But guess what? Truly amazing news! It can also be taken by people who don’t have HIV but are at high risk of contracting it (e.g., men who have sex with men, individuals in serodiscordant relationships). This process is called pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP).

So basically, if you’re all out of condoms and feeling frisky, Truvada may just be your saving grace.

Step One: Talk To Your Doctor

Before diving headfirst into this newfound world of promiscuity (or safety), please consult a healthcare professional. They will evaluate if PrEP may be beneficial for you. Don’t worry; they won’t judge you for being sexually active or adventurous (most likely).

Express your concerns honestly and candidly (unless it involves weird fetishes-seek help) so that they can provide appropriate guidance on using safe sex methods while taking PrEP and essential details surrounding monitoring elements such as liver tests etc.)

It’s important to find someone empathetic — somebody who comprehends sexuality isn’t necessarily heteronormative. Look for physicians who advertise themselves as LGBTQ-friendly or on the WPATH directory to find somebody understanding towards your variance.

Step Two: Review Your Medical History

Once you have found a doctor that both likes and trusts you, they will need to take some routine tests such as STI screening, kidney functioning exams (are yours perfect or substandard?) and Hepatitis B & C checks.

While not necessary, discuss certain conditions with your physician preemptively such as bone density deficiencies to make sure they can account for potential side-effects.

We’ll admit it’s invasive, but it’s worth knowing how healthy we are in every aspect of our lives (even the hoo-ha).

Step Three: Insurance Nonsense

Be careful about any insurance coverage details your care giver discussed with you. Your PrEP prescription could cost up to $2500 per month (big gulp), which is a lot of Benjamin Franklins out of the pocket if not covered by insurance (Drumpf Care anyone?) so be diligent inquiring into individual benefits including co-pays/deductibles fees if possible.

Alternatively, Truvada access programs may help those uninsured cover medical costs once eligibility requirements are met. Looking up local HIV foundations’ website pages could save you over thousands yearly! Remember Google is your friend!

If all else fails- black market sales exist online offering better deals than purchasing via standard channels but don’t tell anyone I shared this.

Step Four: The Visit Itself…

You’ve made friends! Yay! Time for appointment number one; an opportunity where everything would become clear about getting prescribed Truvada (cue drumroll).

During said visit-don’t faint-, provide a quick summary about yourself (hypothetical sample : Hey doc my name is Zayn im 25 white guy pick me?). Explain why your personal risks/behaviors indicate PrEP usage. Don’t forget to show them test result paperworks (5 brownie points) and check the paperwork for accuracy on ongoing medications/allergies.

If you have a partner, it’s important to know their status as well since tests aren’t always reliable. (You heard us)

A lot of doctors might resist prescribing because they think PrEP is like tossing candy at promiscuity (Well obvs we are here for that) . If this occurs midway during your conversation with your doctor, educate your care-giver about how HIV doesn’t discriminate between people who engage in sex more or less frequently- it honestly just needs one chance to spread across human tissues.

Step Five: Success!

Congratulations! You did it!. Now all that’s left is regular testing visits woohoo… not every three months including HIV pills-pick ups from pharmacies combined with STI/STD clinic stop-in visits if any doubt non-medical categories such as occasional alcohol use/mood disorders should also be discussed but don’t let any of these interrupt our busy social schedules.

Nausea Headache
Vomiting Diarrhea
Flatulence Constipation
Insomnia (fancy word for trouble sleeping)

So now you know; go forth into the lands of ecstasy armed with knowledge and security together with preventing transmission risk rather than letting fears take over perfectly normal routines!

Remember: practice safe sex methods throughout life-time whether practicing religious (or kinky) monogamy or not—even when taking Truvada. Nothing can replace good health practices so make sure it comes first in everything✨
