|HIV pos. and neg. pregnant women, any difference?
Sep 3, 2002
I want to know during pregnancy, will a hiv+ woman experience problems other women don't have? like recurrent yeast infection, etc?
Response from Dr. Luzuriaga
As is the case in non-pregnant women, the incidence of HIV-related signs and symptoms during pregnancy correlates with HIV disease status (viral load and CD4+ T cell count). Antiretroviral therapy is thus recommended to optimize maternal health , decrease the likelihood of HIV-related signs/symptoms, and to prevent mother-to-child HIV transmission.
