Hi, sorry to hear about your diagnosis. Have all 3 of you been tested? I had children before I contracted HIV but there are many people who were born with it and years on are living healthy happy lives.

I understand that you must be worried, particularly about your son and it can be a lot to get your head round. How is he currently and also yourself and your husband?  Medication is very effective in suppressing the virus and allowing the immune system to recover. Have you been seen at a clinic or hospital and had blood tests done? Once you have results for viral load and CD4 these will form a baseline from which to start treatment.
