|Testing While Pregnant
Mar 17, 2002
Please answer- I am pregnant and timing is very important. I took a Home Access test at 95 days and 135 days past possible exposure, both negative. Is another test needed and does the pregnancy affect the results or give false negatives?
Response from Dr. Aberg
Pregnancy should not give you a false negative test. All pregnant women should be tested for HIV. I personally prefer that all pregnant women get a pregnancy test done by their provider to assure that the test was done properly.
Could an HIV related rash show up within days?
