  • Dear Murphy

    I can understand your anxiety but there is a solution.would suggest that you both get tested with an Antigen test eg.PCR which is confirmatory.

    Alsp please visit an ART Centre near where you stay they are the best. If you are Pune or near abous then NARI ( National AIDS Research Institute main) of the clinic at Gadhikhanna would be ideal.

    You should also know that very good medications ART is available free in ndia for both HIV1 and HIV2 .

    Pregnancy for HIV positive couples is possible today since it appears that you want a child and that the child should not test positive for HIV. This will require closed supervisions and ART during pregnancy and breast feeding.

    The important thing is to not loose hope and do the actions as soon as possible.

    If you have any further need for infromation do write
