|Positive Man, Negative Woman & Child
Dec 22, 2005
I need some info about a positive man having kids with a negative woman. And what would happen to the kids?

If the woman does not acquire HIV infection from the male partner then there is not a risk of transmission of HIV to the child. If the woman does get infected then there is also risk of mother to infant transmission of the virus as well.
