My boyfriend still wants a baby
      #4242 - 05/22/00 02:30 PM

Lately I have been going through hell! I just found out the other day a guy I met on the internet in January has AIDS and its full-blown too. Anyway I was stupid and slept with him on the first night I met him, I never saw him after that but kept in touch. I got a test done a couple of days ago, and won't get the results back for a couple of weeks...so they say Now I'm just waiting. My problem is I have a boyfriend who loves me with all his heart and soul, at the time I met this other guy we were fighting. My boyfriend wants to marry me and have children. I did tell him whats going on and he says he still loves me and still wants to be with me. I live in another state then him but that doesnt matter to him. Anyway he really wants a baby bad and Im willing to give it to him, but I'm so worried about me testing positive. Will this baby have HIV if I do? My boyfriend doesn't even care that he could get infected he says he will stick by me no matter what. I'm just worried about a child. Please help if you can
Thank you Jessica You can also email me at itsme1017@yahoo.com

Hi Jessica
The incidence of transmission of HIV from man to woman seems to extremely low if non-existent,I think you have nothing to worry about. just look around some of the other postings of women who have been with HIV + partners for 10 years of more without getting infected!
In any case HIV probably does'nt cause AIDS, its more likely the AZT and similar drug therapies that kill people.
don't worry
Jeremy

I think you might want to get your facts straight about HIV, AIDS and the meds. If I understand things correctly, the CDC defines AIDS based on the amount of HIV virus in the blood (viral load) and cell counts and/or if an opportunistic infection is present. The meds are not what causes AIDS.

Also, women DO get HIV from men and I don't think the statement about the transmission rate of women getting HIV from men as low is accurate.

In response to Jeremy's completely misinformed opinion, HIV is transmitted MORE easily from MAN to WOMAN. Women have a much higher chance of tearing during sex (even if these are just minute tears), giving the virus easy access into your system. And AZT does not cause AIDS - HIV is the virus that diminishes the body's immune system so much, that the person becomes more susceptible to illness like cancer and pneumonia. Jeremy, if you've read anything of interest on this board, I would think that you would get your facts straight and not try to encourage the transmission of this illness.

the first thing i thought when i was diagnosed with hiv was im going to die... the second was i will never be a mother.
with proper treatment you can live a healthy life and that means having a baby too! get in touch with some experts and dont let fear take over.i have been pos for five years and have a hiv negative partner and beautiful healthy hiv negative daughter.
good luck.
peace out
