Dear Xoli

In this situation there is no assurance or guarantee that the baby will be protected and furthermore, due to ethical reasons, I do not believe that any studies would have been conducted in a control manner in this type of situation

Hi Xoli

I have friends that are HIV positive,they planned to have a child,she knew when she was ovulating and didnt use a condom fortunately she got preg,she now has a 1year old -ve baby girl,she is healthy as ever.
