concerned for the unborn when with aids
Mar 1, 1999

If your pregnant and have aids how can your baby be protected when the doctor perscribes so much medication?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

If you have HIV infection and are pregnant, antiviral therapy for you against HIV, is extremely important in preventing transmission of HIV to the fetus. There are risks for the fetus associated with some HIV medicines. But after the first trimester, these risks/side effects are small compared to the benefit for both you and the baby. MH
