Recommendations for Use of Antiretroviral Drugs During Pregnancy
Table 5. Situation-Specific Recommendations for Use of Antiretroviral Drugs in Pregnant People and Nonpregnant People Who Are Trying to Conceive
People should be given information about the benefits and risks of initiating an antiretroviral (ARV) regimen or making changes to an existing regimen during pregnancy or when trying to conceive so they can make informed decisions about their care (see Appendix C: Antiretroviral Counseling Guide for Health Care Providers). Patient autonomy and informed choice should be considered in all aspects of medical care, including HIV and obstetric care. These are primary guiding principles in all the Panel’s recommendations.
