Don't do this: Please stop troubling yourself like this. HIV is an incredibly wimpy virus and very hard to contract. Before the infection was treatable, the large majority of wives of infected husbands who had regular unprotected intercourse never got infected. You can't get HIV this way any more than you can get pregnant that way. Be brave -- for your sake and the sake of your new child. Don't let fear rule.
