Response from Dr. Sherer
Kaletra (lopinavir/r) is the only recommended protease inhibitor in the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommendations for ART in pregnant women. It has the most experience of any boosted PI. I support your doctor's recommendation to you.
I urge you to talk to your doctor about your concerns, and this response.
