Dec 18, 2005
i am 36 years of age living with HIV, but my wife is negative living in USA. I am living in Ethiopia. My question "is it possible to have children with out infecting her with HIV?"
Response from Dr. Wohl
It is possible. It is also expensive. Several assisted reproductive centers in the US and Europe can accomplish this in a way that greatly reduces the risk of HIV transmission. Fertility clinics can help lead you to those clinics that have programs for HIV infected persons.
