Thanks for your post.
You're referring to an experimental strategy that uses topical tenofovir to prevent HIV infection. The gel that you speak of is not yet approved for use, nor commercially available.
I hope that results from the studies eventually prove this to be a safe and effective way to help women avoid HIV infection.
