Please let me know
Hi Gynae

I am now 33 weeks pregnant and when i first found out i was pregnant,my doctor gave me a blood test checking for hiv or any other problems that could be seen in my blood.
The results came out negative which is what i had expected in the first place..I was just wandering that how many times does a person have to test for hiv?

Thanks

If you think that you are in contact with someone who could be infected, then you have to test after each sexual encounter.
