Response from Dr. Luzuriaga
If your girlfriend's last sexual contact with her former boyfriend was over 6 months ago and she has repeatedly tested negatove over the past 6 months, she is not likely to be HIV infected. Your girlfriend's baby would only be at risk for infection if your girfriend were infected, so she is also likely not infected.
