One of the side-effects of this is that many are finding themselves having less sex than they usually do. For LGBT+ folk who take PrEP daily to protect them from HIV, this poses the question of whether they should continue their regimen. Matthew Hodson, executive director of HIV awareness and knowledge charity NAM, said that one of the advantages of PrEP is that it can be taken “when you need it”.
