hiv + and sex
Sep 1, 2013

If a couple both has hiv, what is the danger of having unprotected sex and how do they go about having a child free of hiv ?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

There is a risk of transmission, which is greater if one or both have detectable HIV viral loads, and is much less when both have undetectable viral loads. The exact risk is not quantifiable. There are techniques that could be used to have a child, but this requires consultation with an expert who has experience in this regard.
