Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your post.

I don't think that there will be any problem with getting your eye care and HIV. As for starting HIV treatments, there are quite a number of options.

There are a lot of discussions to this point on the forum and I'd suggest that you take a look at the Q&A first. Have a discussion with your HIV specialist about what she or he thinks is most appropriate for your. Given that you want to have a child, the only important thing is to avoid the use of efavirenz (Sustiva, Stocrin) since this drug is contraindicated during pregnancy.

Good luck, let us know how things turn out for you. BY
