  1. Hi Dimakatso

    Finding out you are HIV positive is difficult. It will take you time to come to accept this. It will also take time to decide how you want to move forward.

    Do you have any support. It is definitely easier if you have someone you can talk to. Your clinic should be able to tell you about support groups who can also help.

    Although the news is shocking, it will get easier. Modern treatment means that you can still do everything you planned before you found out you were positive. You can also have as long and as healthy a life as if you were HIV negative.

  3. Hi Margaret,

    Taking HIV meds will not prevent you from becoming pregnant. If you are thinking about getting pregnant you should talk to your clinic or doctor.

  4. Hi,

    Congratulations! Many positive couples have HIV negative children. The most important thing is for you to have an undetectable viral load by the time you give birth. You can do this by taking HIV treatment.
