Q and A


My CD4 is 725, do I need a C-section?

My cd4 count is 725 and I am 38 week pregnant can I have c section?


Thanks for getting in touch.

When a woman is pregnant and she’s thinking about birthing options what’s important is her viral load, and not their CD4 count. If your viral load is undetectable then you can have a vaginal delivery. If however its detectable then a C-section is recommended. Please see here for more info:
