HIV marriage.
Aug 2, 2006

can two people who are positive married?. what are the chance that their children will not be positive?.

Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your post.

As far as I'm aware, there's no reason (medical or legal) why two HIV+ persons couldn't marry.

Further, with access to medications and experienced HIV healthcare providers, the risk of transmission of HIV to their children is very, very low.

Best of luck, BY

when to start?
