Response from Dr. Aberg

Most doctors offer HIV testing to all pregnant women. You would have had to sign a consent if you live in the US. You should just ask your doctor. There is no reason to be afraid. Tell him/her that you were told that all pregnant women get a HIV test drawn and you did not remember getting one so you wanted to know if one was done. If not, go get one to ease your mind.
