Should I be concerned?
Anyone can respond if they know...
My baby was tested at 2 months and she was negative. The Paediatrician that ordered the test said that if the first test was negative, I could accept that my child is not infected. However... I've been to 2 GP's and they insist that she should be tested again! What are the chances of her testing + in a second test? What would potentially put her at rick of becoming +? Are GP's more clued up about HIV in babies than Paediatricians? When should a second test be done?

Your baby is negative. Why do you want to test her again?
