HIV and pregnancy

Jul 28, 2013

1 year ago I had a HIV scare. My wife was pregnant and was tested 4 months after the scare. She was negative. The baby is 3 months now. Could we still be at risk? I have an itchy rash on my arms and chest.

Response from Dr. Fawcett

Thanks for writing. Given the time frames you mentioned there is no ongoing risk of HIV infection.


Tested positive with mental health concerns
Was HIV a subconscious suicide attempt?
