Emergency room

Dec 20, 2013

I went to the emergency room and found out I was pregnant what other test do they test me for

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi Your OBGYN should offer a bunch of testing throughout your pregnancy and one that should be run is HIV. We know that women who are pregnant and HIV positive that are placed on HIV medication throughout her pregnancy the baby has less than 1% chance of being born with HIV.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon
