Do you know if your wife has HIV as well?

Was she tested? and if so, is she on medications?


What medications are you on- and do you know your CD4 count and viral load?

Expert:  TheBugDoctor replied 5 years ago.


Well, the first step , in order to best answer your questions, is for her to be tested.

If she is not infected, and does not become infected during pregnancy, then the risk to the baby is zero.


Even if she is infected, most of the time (but certainly not always) transmission occurs late in pregnancy. It has been well established that treating pregnant women with antiviral medications markedly lowers the risk to the baby- With proper care to the point where her viral load becomes undetectable, the risk should be no more than 2%.


I would also advise that you see a doctor, and assess your status- CD4 count, viral load and determine if you should be on medications. And you should not have unprotected sex with your wife until this is all sorted out.


Good luck.
