    "The transmission of HIV from mother to child is a widespread problem throughout the world, as 25 to 35% of all babies whose mothers possess an untreated strain of the virus become infected"

    That's not hereditary...it's through fluids during birth that it's possible.

    me neither but he isnt very confident and stuff and he is like 17 and he hadnt kissed a girl before me and things. Surely from my other posts you could tell i am not exactly quiet. just dont want to hurt him i am pretty much in love with him
    I haven’t read your other posts but if you love him then your wont hurt him… I mean not many relationships that started as teenagers last years so I wouldn’t worry too much about it.

    Doesn't the baby receive bodily fluids through the fallopian tube from the parent in order to get nutrients etc. in the womb?
    Yes. It doesn't always infect the child. It is quite likely though, especially if (as has been said above) the mother is not being treated.

    It's vastly more likely if HIV has developed into AIDS in the mother.

    Didn't say it was hereditary, just that it is my no means impossible that HIV is passed onto a child from the mother.

    I never argued against that fact...I merely pointed it out it wasn't hereditary :rolleyes:

    Not really. I don't understand why you quoted me all that jargon when you were never intending to contradict what I said..?

    I think you mean placenta, and that's congenital transmission, not hereditary. The virus may also be passed in breast milk.

    Guys i'm not usually "this guy" but WAAAAYYY off topic, the problem she stated isn't whether HIV is gonna be a problem... anyway not from experience but make sure he's comfortable and let him know you're not expecting him to be a *freak in the bed* he'll get better with time

    And the first thing you do is post on tsr?
    Would you have preferred he lied until later on?

    Get in there! And whatever you do; don't patronise him. Just be mature about it and show him the ropes

    Take it slowly with him and make sure he's comfortable. It's hardly a big deal, now, is it?
    What are you on about.

    You need to be voracious with the noobs.
