Hi. I need to ask you something, please.
As I undersand it, a male infected with HIV/AIDS, is still capable of impregnating a woman?
Does the conceived baby authomatically receive the virus?
I know that the bearer of the child still has a chance of not communicating the virus, but if she does - does the baby get infected through her? If so, is the baby's chance of survival very low?
Thank you in advance.
