Thanks for getting in touch.

How are you doing with your diagnoses? Are you getting any support?

With regards to your question, no it’s not too late, you do however need to start taking ARVs. Please see here for more info: https://i-base.info/guides/pregnancy

Not only will ARVs help your health, they’ll also reduce the risk of transmission to your baby. As you’re yet to start taking ARVs, you may find this helpful: https://i-base.info/guides/starting
