i am a male on ATRIPLA for a year i want a child now.

Dec 15, 2011

his it possible i can have children without infected my negative wife and baby?

Response from Mr. Vergel

Yes, it is possible, but you need to talk to your doctor about this.

There is emerging data on the use of pre exposure prophylaxis for the HIV negative partner while the HIV-positive one has had undetectable viral load for a long time. Sperm washing is also another option, but it is expensive and only legal in certain states.

I hope this helps!

Good luck. More and more people are asking about this now that we are living longer and that we have more data on different methods to conceive safely.
