A HIV positive woman who was raped at ages 8 and 16 has shared her story on how she was able to give birth to her children who are negative.
Despite living with HIV, @niqita11 has a partner who is HIV negative and they have kids who are all HIV negative.
In her post, she revealed how she was able to achieve this, which is simply by religiously sticking to taking the pills and taking them correctly.
Sharing a photo of her 3 kids, who are HIV negative, she wrote:
“This single pill has given me 3 negative kids and a negative partner the more you take your pill and correctly your viral load will be undetectable making it impossible to infect the next, meaning it’s in ur body but not active.”
In another post, she wrote:
