Positive and need a Baby.

Aug 26, 2001

Hi! my VL is 50 and my cd4 is 261, I really need a baby, and can i try now? My VL was 3532 first, and cd4 was 80. Please i need your help.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

This is not an easy issue to deal with and I suggest you discuss this issue carefully with an OB/gyne doc with experience in HIV-infected moms. The risk of transmission to a fetus in a women with a viral load of < 50 is extremely small, but we could never say zero.

conditions which warrant further testing?
