My name is Pauline Saha. I am a mother of 3. It's about six years now since I tested HIV positive. I found out when I was pregnant with my last born child during the mandatory anti natal clinics. I was shocked and worried that my husband would chase me away. I later lied to my husband that the anti natal clinic insisted that my husband be there with me for and that we should be both tested. I also asked the counselor to act as if she was testing us for the first time. My husband agreed and he tested negative. He saw my results and we both received counseling. Soon after the clinic after we got home my husband changed for the worst. I was rejected, discriminated against, denied conjugal rights, my husband never used to even touch me- afraid that he would contract the virus through my sweat. After a long battle with stigma from right, left and center, God has been faithful and today my husband has changed to love me as I am and together we are bring up our children.
