Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your post,

There are many, many factors that govern the decision to have a child- only one small aspect is covered by your question.

If all things are equal, I wouldn't recommend pregnancy until you are on a stable, well tolerated medication regimen and have a CD4 count in the normal range-- preferably greater than 350.

Best of health to you, BY
