Sexually Transmitted Infections
Does pregnancy place women at increased risk of becoming infected with HIV?
There is currently no concrete evidence of pregnancy increasing the risk of becoming infected with HIV. Pregnant people should, of course, remember to use condoms while having sex so as to prevent getting HIV and other STIs. If a pregnant person does have HIV, it is important to take measures to prevent the spread of the virus to the child during pregnancy, delivery, and childbirth, which can be discussed with their doctor.
