Planning a Pregnancy

Planning a Pregnancy

We would like to have a baby will that be possible?

Yes, it is possible to have a baby if you or your partner is HIV positive. If you are thinking of having a baby please take the opportunity to discuss this with your nurse and doctor when you come to the clinic. We can talk about what to do if both of you are HIV positive, if only the man is HIV positive or if only the woman is HIV positive. If you are a HIV positive woman on medication and you would like to get pregnant there are some medications that we would avoid so please let us know.

I think I am pregnant, what should I do?

Do a pregnancy test! If you are taking HIV medication and you have just found out you are pregnant please get in contact with us as soon as possible.
