I’m undetectable and pregnant, do I need other medication?
I’m HIV positive and have been on treatment since I found out 3 years ago. I adhere to my treatment and have an undetectable VL. I just found out that I’m 10 weeks pregnant. Do I need to take extra medication for the baby or not?
Thanks for getting in touch.
If you’re asking if you need to take more ARVs, the answer is no. Your HIV is already under control, this is what counts when you’re pregnant as the following explains: https://i-base.info/guides/pregnancy
If you need to take, for example, iron supplements, this is something that your doctor/nurse will be able to tell you.
