Need an Urgent Advice

Jan 22, 2004

My cousin brother tested HIV+VE in Yr. 1995. He got married to a girl in Yr. 1998. This girl delivered a baby boy in Yr. 1999. Now, my cousin brother died in Yr. 2000 of AIDS. However, the this girl and her baby boy tested Negative in Yr. 2000. From then onwards the girl has tested herself for HIV in Yr. 2001, 2002 and 2003. All test are negative. Kindly advice, if this girl can become HIV+ve in future. If yes, for how long she should get herself tested after which she could assure that she will never become positive in future. Kindly help we need an ungent advice. Thanks

what's due out next?
