Pregnancy and HIV false positive result
      01/19/12 08:39 AM

Hello everyone. I appreciate if anyone could answer my question regarding pregnancy and HIV False positive result.

My wife may be pregnant and she may be obtaing her routine blood test. I once read that if a pregnant woman was to take a HIV test, the result may be false positive. Why would this occur? Would she have to be administered a western blot test....even though I am negative?

Thank you,
Rusty
