I was scheduled to begin my IVF cycle this month but yesterday
my OB called and asked to see my husand and I. 2 weeks ago we had
what we thought would be just routing, blood tests including
HIV. Since we have been together for 7 years and I know
he has not been screwing around on me, we felt
find having these tests done because we knew that they
would come back negative. When we went in today, the doctor
said that all of my tests were negative but his HIV test
came back positive. He became extremely upset because he
hads not been doing anything wrong and had only had 2 other partners
prior to me and they do not have this- and we cant figure
why this happened. Of course he had an immediate retest
today but needless to say we are devastated. I guess I am just
trying to cope with the fact that I guess having a child is
out and there is a real life threat to my husband and that
it cant be long until my HIV test will come back negative
because of his status. My ob said I could probably do the IVF
with donar sperm but right now I am too upset to even think
about that- what started our as an exciting chance to have
a child has now turned into a terrorizing nightmare.
guess I justed needed to vent- thanks for having this forum
for me to come to.
