Pregnant by HIV+ Partner
Oct 20, 2006

I've been involved with a guy since april & in june I fell pregnant but I had a miscarriage in july. I have since found out that he is HIV positive, its now over three months later since the miscarriahe & my results are still negative, how is this possible? am I neative or positive

Response from Dr. Remien

If you have tested negative, then you should trust that you are not infected. To be sure, you can test again in another 3 months to reassure yourself. Unprotected sex with an HIV+ person can certainly lead to infection, but it often does not happen. Consider yourself lucky this time and think about precautions in the future.
