Really i don't understand please write me if i take medicies than it sure that's i sex without any protection and my wife born son???? after Born not any problem to my son???please reply me

Response from Dr. Frascino


I don't agree with your doctor! Certainly if you take effective combination antiretroviral therapy that drive down your HIV plasma viral load to undetectable levels, the risk of HIV transmission would be significantly decreased (but not completely eliminated). Regarding conceiving a child, see response below from the archives. If your wife remains HIV negative, you will have an HIV-negative baby. During pregnancy, labor and breastfeeding, an infant can only be infected by its mother.
