My boyfriends ex-girlfriend was tested a month ago for HIV. Luckily it came back negative. Now she claims she is 3 months pregnant. I have heard from many sources that an HIV test would show whether or not you are pregnant. When an HIV test is done do they test for pregnancy also?

Response from Dr. Luzuriaga

HIV testing only provides information about whether someone is infected with HIV or not. When a woman is tested for HIV, a pregnancy test is not done automatically.
