Dr Eve answers:
It is good that you are using
a condom right now as you
want to get proper health care
advice on how to fall pregnant safely.
In other words, your partner will
be placed on ARVs to prevent him
becoming infected with the virus and
then your baby will also be treated
before she/he is born so that she/he
does not become infected.
Consult your HIV/Aids reproductive
health clinic to get all the help that
you have a right to receive
