aids and pregnancy

Oct 15, 2011

Hi Doctor Holodniy. I would like to know if I'm in aids and get pregnant could my baby be hiv or aids? thanks

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Yes, that is possible. However, Starting and staying on HIV treatment during pregnancy and getting your CD4 count increased and viral load undetectable would significant reduce the chance of your baby becoming infected.

cd4 down vl undetectable
