Restriction lifting and PrEP 

So with the next stage of UK restriction lifting coming this month I've decided to try to get back on PrEP.

Kinda dreading this as last time it caused a week of a rotten stomach from initial side effects.

@bootblackcub You’ll make it through! I’m glad you’re keeping yourself safe.

@HairyHypnotist thankyou. It's a week of side effects that can prevent a lifetime of medication, so it's an easy choice to tough it out

@bootblackcub I'm holding off for now (waiting until vaccinated to go out and play) but got the same concern for when I go back.

@SirKinkSteel well far it hasnt been as bad as the first time around. i think my body seems to have kept some of its tollerance.

@bootblackcub I think there's an element of that, I know when I had to take a few weeks off it before I didn't have any side effects going back on, but I've not been off it as long as I have this time.

@bootblackcub I have known folks who had this issue with Truvada, but it went away with Descovy. Have you looked into switching?

@Secretfaggot I will have to see if it's avalible to people in the UK.

@bootblackcub Good question: I don’t know for sure.
