For Lyle (21), PrEP came too late

It came too late for me, but I am happy with it anyway

Lyle thaught that PrEP would be a good means for him to protect himself from HIV. He enrolled in a study with PrEP, but just before he got in, he found out he had HIV. Despite PrEP coming to late for him, he is happy that more people can use PrEP now. It could lessen the fear of HIV.

Editor’s note

‚ÄčMan to Man interviewed men with a wide variety of experiences and reasons to use PrEP. Their personal stories about sex and health do not necessarily reflect Man to Man’s recommendations. PrEP is a very effective way to protect yourself against HIV. For other STIs, condoms are the best available protection.
