Dec 21, 2008

Thanks for the good works,i married a widowed woman about six months ago,now she is pregnant and tested hiv positive,dr.does it mean iam infected ?

Response from Dr. McGovern

I would want you and your wife to discuss with your doctor as to whether this was a rapid HIV test or a routine HIV test - the rapid tests need to be confirmed. If truly positive, she and you will also need hepatitis testing.
