Sperm washing combined with effective combination antiretroviral therapy and artificial insemination can significantly decrease the risk of HIV transmission for magnetic couples wanting to conceive; however, it's not inexpensive and may not be covered by your insurance plan. I would suggest you ask your HIV specialist physician for a referral to an HIV-knowledgeable obstetrician who could help explain your options (and risks) in greater detail.
