My male partner is + and im -. How possible is it for us to still have uninfected children?

Response from Dr. Remien

If you are asking about how you have been able to have children by getting pregnant with an HIV+ man and have uninfected children -- a baby can only get infected during pregnancy or childbirth, if the mother is HIV+. If you have had unprotected sex with your positive partner, then you have been lucky to not become infected. There are ways of protecting yourself and a fetus from infection - please consult with a physician about such things.
