The testosterone that men produce usually result in oily skin. Men produce higher levels of sebum which unfortunately lead to breakouts because of clogged pores.

Your facial hair/beards may also lead to acne since they trap oil and may become a bacterial breeding ground. Men are prone to acne on the face, arms, chest, back and shoulders. Sweating may exacerbate the condition. Bodybuilding supplements that promote muscle growth may also bring on acne or make it worse.

HIV post-exposure prophylaxis is a medicine that you can take if you have been exposed to the HIV virus.

If you believe that you have been exposed, you should visit your doctor as soon as possible.

The medication works best if it is taken as soon as possible. It is most effective within 72 hours of the suspected exposure.

PEP is designed to prevent the spread of the HIV infection in your body. It is an emergency measure.

You should consider HIV post-exposure prophylaxis if you have engaged in risky sexual behaviour, have been exposed to shared needles or have been sexually assaulted. 

Feel free to contact our clinic if you would like to access PEP today.

You should consider HIV PrEP if you are at high risk for contracting HIV. If are unsure whether or not you are in the high-risk bracket. Here are some helpful guidelines:

  • Having unprotected sex with multiple partners 
  • Having a sexual exposure with a HIV positive partner 
  • Having unprotected sex with persons whose HIV status is largely unknown.
  • Sharing needles with persons whose HIV status is unknown. 

HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis also referred to as PrEP is medication an HIV negative individual can take to prevent contracting an HIV infection.

PrEP treatment works by having the dose of the drug already present in the body to stop the virus from replicating in your body.

If you want to know your HIV status, we can help. We offer HIV testing and different types of tests that you can have done based on when you were exposed to the virus. Additionally, we offer rapid testing, where you get the results in roughly 20 mins.

Most people opt for rapid testing because waiting for HIV test results can be stressful.

We cannot stress enough the importance of knowing your HIV status. Generally, people seek to know their HIV status if they suspect that they have been exposed or if they are starting a new sexual relationship.

Again, we wish to allay any fears regarding whether or not your results will remain private. We handle all HIV testing with the utmost discretion.

The HPV vaccination is both safe and effective. It protects against genital warts and certain types of cancer. Ideally, men should get vaccinated before they are sexually active. Young boys and adolescents are prime candidates for the vaccine.

With male pattern hair loss or Androgenic Alopecia, the growth cycle of your hair strand starts to weaken. In due course, the hair follicle shrinks. You may be noticing that your hair strands are not growing very long and have taken on a finer quality.

Eventually, the growth cycle for each strand of hair comes to an end. As such, the hair is not replaced, leaving a bald spot.
