Response from Mr. Vergel

I did a search to find companies that remove HIV from sperm for artificial insemination

In the United States, these seem to be the costs http://sementesting.org/index.php/hiv-semen/semen-hiv-test-cost.html

In Israel: http://www.haaretz.com/hasen/spages/1162645.html

In California, the bill was approved: http://www.poz.com/articles/california_hiv_sperm_1_12932.shtml

I would call fertility centers around your area to see if they provide sperm washing services. The good news is that men with undetectable viral load in the blood frequently (but not always) have undetectable virus in seminal fluid. A cohort that observed HIV+ men and their HIV- females partners trying to conceive in Africa saw a dramatic decrease in HIV transmission when men had controlled HIV replication.
