I think that people forget that condoms protect you from more than just pregnancy.
And there is no morning after pill for HIV.
ACTUALLY THERE IS.
It’s called post exposure prophylaxis.
If you’ve had unprotected sex and are afraid of possibly being at risk for HIV, please go to the emergency room and ask about POST EXPOSURE PROPHYLAXIS.
Works for up to 48 - 72 hours after exposure to HIV.
NO NO NO. FUCKING STOP. THIS IS SO, SO, SO WRONG. PEP IS NOT A MORNING AFTER PILL FOR HIV. IT IS A PROGRAM OF SEVERAL HARSH DRUGS THAT MUST BE TAKEN MULTIPLE TIMES A DAY FOR AT LEAST A MONTH. IF YOU MISS A SINGLE DOSE YOU HAVE A GOOD CHANCE OF DEVELOPING HIV, AS THE HIV WILL BUILD UP IMMUNITY TO THE DRUGS AND RENDER THEM ALL VOID. IT COSTS AROUND $600-1,000 AND CAN HAVE SUCH INTENSE SIDE EFFECTS (EXTREME VOMITING, DIARRHEA, MIGRAINES, IMMUNE SYSTEM DAMAGE) THAT 40% OF PEOPLE WHO START THE PROGRAM BECOME SO SICK THEY HAVE TO STOP.
IT IS FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN EXPOSED TO HIV IN THE WORKPLACE I.E. HEALTH CARE WORKERS. IT IS FOR CONTACT WITH CONTAMINATED BLOOD. IT IS NOT INTENDED FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE HAD UNSAFE SEX. AND IT SURE AS FUCK IS NOT ALWAYS EFFECTIVE. IT HAS A SUCCESS RATE OF 79%, WHICH IS NOT ENOUGH WHEN COMPARED TO THE 99.6%. SUCCESS RATE OF PROPERLY-USED CONDOMS. 15% OF PEOPLE WHO DO NOT USE CONDOMS WILL BE EXPOSED. STOP SPREADING MISINFORMATION, YOU’RE ENDANGERING LIVES. PLEASE SPREAD THIS CORRECTION.
lol idk isn’t it all just easier to wear a condom i mean ????
