still worried.....
Jun 8, 2004

I became pregnant in July of "2000" a Man who has had many sexual partners before me (and a few during the few months we were together)I have had just one partner before him and before I met him my previous sexual experience was about 12 yrs eairler I was tested at the beginning of my pregnancy about 5 months later..both tests came back being negative....should I still worry about contacting HIV from this experience? and does my child need to be tested?

Response from Dr. Luzuriaga

With 2 negative tests and no further possible exposures, you do not need to be re-tested and your child does not need to be tested.

so many questions
please help!
