HIV positive Husband but Negative Kids and Wife

Dec 19, 2006

I have searched thru your forums, and noone seems to have asked this question.. My husband and I have been married for over 3 years. We have 2 children. During the pregnancies I, and both children tested negative for HIV during normal pregnancy testing. If my husband is testing positive now, is it possible that he contracted HIV 3 years ago and just never passed it on to us?

Response from Dr. Horwath

It is possible.
