PrEP stands for pre-exposure prophylaxis and is, in addition to the condom and protection through therapy, when used correctly, an effective protection against HIV infection.
PrEP is the regular intake of a drug used in HIV therapy. Currently approved are Truvada ® from Gilead and some generic drugs (imitation drugs):
PrEP only protects against HIV, not against other STIs.
A doctor must regularly check kidney values and test for HIV and other STIs.
Before you make a decision to take a PrEP to prevent HIV infection, you should have a consultation. Here you can clarify whether this method is the right one for you and what requirements you need to meet in order for it to work and be tolerated. Here you can find a counselling centre in Berlin that will help you.
Furthermore some medical examinations have to be done. They check if your body can tolerate PrEP, if you are already infected with HIV or if there are other sexually transmitted infections that need to be treated. You can have some of these examinations done in these counselling centres, or by these doctors, among others.
If it turns out that PrEP is the right method for you to protect yourself against HIV and all the tests are OK in this sense, you can have your doctor prescribe it.

During the blowing, infection with HIV is unlikely. Even if someone squirts in your mouth, the risk is very low. Injuries to the mucous membrane caused by deep blowing (deepthroat) or nasal drugs increase the risk of infection. Other sexually transmitted infections (STIs) such as gonorrhea, chlamydia and hepatitis A and B can be transmitted by blowing. If this happens, you can get treatment from your doctor. Remember that some infections can be asymptomatic.
Get tested several times a year for HIV, Hep C and other sexually transmitted infections (STI). Swabs of the tail in your ass and throat will help you find anything that doesn’t belong there. Vaccinations against hepatitis A and B are possible.
