Do they not do a HIV Test the same time they do a pregnancy test?

What you saying is that some where along the pregnancy they do do a HIV Test?

Do they need your permission to do a HIV Test while you pregnant, or do they do it automaticly?

When you fall pregnant: They test you before the baby is born to determine the appropriate treatment for both you and the baby.

After the baby is born: They can only do the tests with your permission or request. Either way both you and the baby have to be tested for progress and to administered the correct treatment when needed.
