My childs tested negative twice, will she be OK?
Hi, my baby is 5 months old has so far tested negative twice. However my viral load is 57 and I’ve been breastfeeding her. I’m worried that her result may change when she tests again at 18 months.
Thanks for getting in touch.
Its great to hear that your child has already tested negative, and twice, this is really important. Its a good sign that they’ll be negative.
Though your viral load is 57, its very unlikely that your childs HIV test results will be positive. However, as you’ve said you may need to wait until they are 18 months old to be 100% sure. Please see here: https://i-base.info/guides/pregnancy/hiv-negative
