Question

Can I breastfeed? I just started medication.

I started my treatment when I was 7 months pregnant. Can I breastfeed? Is it OK to skip a few days of medication?

Answer

Thanks for getting in touch,

Breastfeeding guidelines vary depending on where someone lives in the world. If you live in the UK, then no you wouldn’t be advised to breastfeed and this is even if your HIV were 100% under control. Where do you live?

Skipping medication for a day or two isn’t advised for anyone, if you’re having issues of adherence please talk to someone about this.
