How PrEP & DoxyPEP protect you from STIs

PrEP and DoxyPEP are two different medications that prevent different STIs. Taking both as recommended by your clinician makes sex safer.

  • PrEP prevents HIV with up to 99% efficacy when taken as prescribed.
  • DoxyPEP helps prevent bacterial STIs when taken within 72 hours after having condomless sex.
DoxyPEP is not a replacement for PrEP. DoxyPEP is only available to patients who also get PrEP from Freddie.

FAQs about PrEP & DoxyPEP

Got even more questions? Read our in-depth explainers:

What is PrEP?

PrEP is short for pre-exposure prophylaxis.

It's a once-per-day HIV prevention pill that reduces the risk of contracting HIV by up to 99%. The presence of the medicine in your bloodstream helps stop HIV from taking hold, ensuring you remain HIV-negative.

What is DoxyPEP?

DoxyPEP is short for doxycycline post-exposure prophylaxis.

It’s a medication that helps prevent bacterial STIs when taken after a potential exposure, such as having unprotected (condomless) anal, oral or vaginal intercourse. You take it within 72 hours after having condomless sex.

Are PrEP and DoxyPEP right for me?

PrEP is recommended for persons with the highest risk of HIV infection, including (but not limited to):

  • Men who have sex with men and transgender women

  • Heterosexual men and women who have high-risk exposure (such as having a partner with known HIV infection, sex workers, or having sex with a person at high risk for HIV)

  • People who inject drugs

DoxyPEP is currently only recommended for men who have sex with men, trans women and other gender-diverse people born with a penis. Additionally, DoxyPEP may be right for you if you:

  • have had a bacterial STI in the past year and have had condomless anal or oral sexual contact with ≥ 1 cis male or trans female partner in the past year

  • have a history of syphilis infection

  • have had multiple cis male or trans female sex partners in the prior year, even if you have not previously been diagnosed with an STI

How much do PrEP and DoxyPEP cost?
  • The price of PrEP varies depending on where you live and what type of insurance you have. Over 90% of Freddie patients get PrEP for free, and 85% of Freddie patients with private insurance can access Descovy — the newest form of PrEP — for $0.

  • DoxyPEP is covered by most private insurance plans. Following your assessment, we'll be able to give you more information on your coverage for DoxyPEP.

How effective are PrEP and DoxyPEP?

PrEP: When PrEP is taken daily, it reduces the risk of getting HIV from sex by 99%.

  • PrEP is highly effective for anal sex after daily PrEP is taken consistently for seven days.

  • PrEP is highly effective for vaginal sex after daily PrEP is taken consistently for 21 days.

Research also suggests PrEP can reduce the risk of getting HIV from drug injection by 84%, but there is less data around its efficacy.

DoxyPEP: Studies show that in people born with a penis, DoxyPEP reduced the risk of chlamydia by 70-89% and syphilis by 73-87% when taken as prescribed.

Where is Freddie available?

Freddie is a Canadian healthcare provider that currently serves residents of Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario and Saskatchewan.
