In the live chat of German Aidshilfe on www.health-support.de gays provide advice for gays and other men who have sex with men - direct, anonymous and free. You can reach them daily between 5 PM and 8 PM.
They are at your disposal for any questions about sexual health and gay life.
Since September 1, 2019, people with a substantial HIV risk have been entitled to the drugs and necessary examinations for the HIV prophylaxis PrEP, provided that they have statutory health insurance and are at least 16 years old.
Who exactly has such an increased HIV risk, what services the PrEP includes and which doctors may prescribe the PrEP, has been determined in late July by the Kassenärztliche Bundesvereinigung (Federal Association of Doctors in the Statutory System) and the Central Association of Statutory Health Insurances and has now been published.
You can find further information about this on Safer Sex 3.0.
There are many questions around the PrEP: "How safe is it?", "What must I bear in mind?", "What are the advantages and disadvantages compared with other safer sex methods?", "Is PrEP suitable for me as a prevention method? " or "Where do I get the PrEP and how much does it cost?"
Therefore we offer an open PrEP consultation once a month in the Aidshilfe rooms, the next time on Wednesday
- 11 december
- 22 january
- 19 february
each time from 6 PM to 8 PM.
But you can also arrange consultation appointments with us outside the PrEP consultation hours.
Besides HIV, there are other sexually transmitted diseases. Even condoms only reduce the risk of infection but do not provide complete protection.
Use our free offer "Test it!" and have yourself checked regularly. We offer tests for HIV, syphilis, chlamydia, gonococci (gonorrhea) as well as hepatitis B and C. "Test it!" takes place every Tuesday from 6 - 8 PM in the Aidshilfe rooms.
The Exacto HIV self-test can be bought from us now for the price of 20 euros, the double pack costs 35 euros.
The HIV self-test is an HIV test that can be easily performed by yourself, e.g. at home. It is a pure antibody test and provides a safe result 3 months after the last risk contact. Further important information about HIV self-tests can be found here.
On request, we offer you the opportunity to carry out the HIV self-tests together with one of our consultants. For this we ask you to make an appointment with us on 0681 - 19 4 11. Of course we offer the test confidentially and anonymously. Disclosing your name is not necessary when making an appointment.
With the condom, PrEP (the precaution pill against HIV) and protection by therapy, we now have three methods available to safely protect against HIV if used properly.
