A couple of weeks later, he advised me that his HIV test came up inconclusive-which he advised me is mostly likely a positive result. The news was like a shot in the head because I was caught in between two worlds- do I stay with my current husband or do I move on to my new life?
Then the truth set me free. Learning about Undetectable equals Un-transmittable ( U=U ), and PrEP gave me a new light in life. I set out to make sure I achieved and maintained undetectable levels to prevent the spread of HIV and inform my partners about PrEP. I have come to understand that my future child will not face the same stigma and side effects in their life. This hope has inspired me to think about what family I want to have.
Is pericoital or peri-insemination pre-exposure prophylaxis effective human immunodeficiency prevention for vaginal exposures?
In fact, there has never been a case reported of penile-vaginal HIV transmission in the setting of an undetectable viral load. Therefore, in these studies, HIV prevention was due to treatment as prevention and not subtherapeutically dosed PrEP.
Check out this Hangout to see how PrEP Awareness Campaigns are including women! We also have a list of resources from all the campaigns on the Hangout.
Poppy and Ted, a serodifferent couple (Ted is living with HIV and Poppy isn?t), talk with their provider, Emily Miller, MD, MPH, about their options for having a baby.
