David1024 Posted August 24, 2021 Share Posted August 24, 2021 So I finally decided to get on PrEP, but wanted to do it as discretely as possible. Nurx makes it really easy, but as far as I can see, they only operate in the US and not in every state. They sent me a home testing kit for a urine sample, blood sample, throat swab and anal swab (women also get a vaginal swab). I mailed back the samples and swabs, got the results quickly and they prescribed the meds. The testing cost $15 for the copay, but the meds did not come quite as cheaply. I had a copay of $420 for a 90 day supply. I got a generic for Truvada and so far, no side effects at all. I used to pay for a private STD test fairly regularly, so it probably won’t cost me too much more as I will likely need to get tested every 3 months before getting a new prescription The one thing that surprised me was that I went for my annual physical last week and my doctor had on record that I was taking Truvada. I don’t think I gave any info on my primary care physician when registering with Nurx, so just curious how the information got transmitted. It’s not a big deal for me, just a surprise I wasn’t expecting. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
