husband positive, wife negative, baby wanted
May 31, 2002

My husband was diagnosed of hiv last year, and his viral load is less than 100. I tested negative. How can we have a baby without me being infected or the baby.

Response from Dr. Sullivan

in vitro fertilization would be the best hope with the least risk but there would still be a risk of 1% or less.JLS.

Positive 1/2 antibodies Negative Western blot
Months old baby...could she be infected?
