|Re: double checking

This is in response to my first question on double checking. I took the Hiv test when I was 5 weeks pregnant. Should I take the test again?
Response from Dr. Luzuriaga
Testing just once during pregancy is recommended. Re-testing later in pregancy is only recommended for individuals with ongoing exposures that could put them at risk for infection (e.g., intravenous drug use, sex with multiple partners or with a known HIV positive partner).
