Positive man with negative wife wants to have baby
Mar 15, 2000

I am a HIV positive man and I want to have a child with my wife who is negative. What, in your opinion is the best way to do this?

Response from Dr. Luzuriaga

For a thorough discussion of considerations and options for mixed status couples wishing to have a child, please see Dr. Remien's Forum on Mixed Status Couples on this web site. Dr. Remien's answers to questions on "Kids" (February 28,2000) and sperm washing ("Assisted Pregnancies"; February 15, 1999) might be of particular interest to you.
