You don't have to give up your baby, viread is safe for pregnancy according to my doc. I'm currently 18 wks preggo and will start viread after 24th wk. I will continue to take viread after the baby and I want another baby after this one. I asked my doc should I stop taking viread if i'm pregnant again? He said if I stop the virus might flare up even higher so I should continue to take viread even if i do get pregnant again. My goal is to reduce the viral load so when it's time to deliver the baby will have less chance to get infected. The only thing that I'm very disappointed is I can not breastfeed if i'm on viread :(.
be carefull it is full of ignorant doctors, please see a second doctor and very expert and change the one who told you to stop viread, he was totally wrong and any expert doctor will tell you that
on the contrary viread is used before pregnancy to lower the virus and save the baby from cronic hbv
