I have a question about pregnancy
Feb 6, 2006

My CD4 is 1059 and my VL is undetectable. My husbands CD4 is 58 and his VL is 1000.He just started taking medication and I have been on meds for almost a year now. Is the chance of us having a baby HIV+ greater due to his count? Should we wait to his count goes up to try?

Response from Dr. Henry

If you have an undetectable viral load on treatment then the chances the a baby you deliver will be HIV infected is probably 1% or less. The baby doesn't get infected from the father but only from the mother. KH
