Q and A


I’m breastfeeding, can I stop taking ARVs?


Thanks for getting in touch.

If you stop taking ARVs when breastfeeding you risk transmitting HIV to your child. Depending on where you live, you could be prosecuted for negligence.

If you no longer want to take ARVs you should switch your baby onto formula. If you are thinking about stopping it may help to get some support.
