Before you can start Truvada® or Descovy for PrEP, you will need to complete lab work. After you get started on PrEP, you will only need to get your labs done every 3 months. We know getting labs done isn’t the most enjoyable process, but it’s important to know your status and it will help keep you and your partner(s) healthy. We even offer lab work options that can be done in the comfort and privacy of your own home and offer optional testing for STIs.
You will be tested for:
Kidney function (creatinine)
Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, and Syphilis (optional, but we highly recommend this)
Pregnancy (for female-bodied patients)
