Recommended for All Women During Pregnancy. CDC recommends that all pregnant women get tested for HIV, hepatitis B virus (HBV), hepatitis C virus (HCV), and syphilis during each HIV screening in pregnancy book. Screening is necessary to access medical services for HCV and treatment to prevent transmission of HIV, HBV, and syphilis to the infant.

The Home Access HIV-1 Test System requires a small blood sample that is collected at home and sent to a lab. The user, who may remain anonymous, can get results by phone in three business days.

HIV Testing in Pregnancy. HIV infection should be identified prior to pregnancy (see Preconception Counseling and Care for Women of Childbearing Age Living with HIV) or as early in pregnancy as provides the best opportunity to improve maternal health and pregnancy outcomes, to prevent infant acquisition of HIV, and to identify HIV infection and start therapy as soon.

The test looks for the presence of the virus in the baby’s blood. The baby has HIV infection if two of these test results are positive. The baby does not have HIV infection if two of these test results are negative.

Another type of HIV test is done when the baby is 12–18 months old. Glossary. HIV-2 Infection and Pregnancy. DTG is now recommended for treatment of HIV-2 mono-infection in pregnant women, irrespective of trimester, and in women who are trying to conceive (AIII).

As with HIV-1, the Panel recommends that clinicians consider the possibility of HBV/HIV-2 coinfection when choosing an ARV regimen to treat HIV-2 (AI). In many countries, HIV/AIDS prevalence is increasing rapidly among women of reproductive age, and has become an important contributing factor to high maternal morbidity and mortality.
