Is my daughter negative or positive?
Jan 22, 2007

How long does it take for a child to show simptoms of HIV? Can a child born to a positive mother be born positive but grow to teenage age without any simptom,iam scared please advise me i know the best wayof finding out is by tesing her but iam just scared.

Response from Dr. Young

I think you're scared. First off, it would be highly unlikely for a child to grow to a teenager without showing signs of HIV. Second, the only way to be certain is to get HIV testing. BY
