sperm washing

Apr 26, 2011

Sorry for your confusing.I am male.I plan to have a baby with my partner,my viral load is undetectable,cd4 is about 600.I feel well.My doctor told me it is almost 100 percent safe if I use a squirt to do the artificial insemination by my self and I do not need to have my sperm washed.Is this true?He told me a lot of people do this.Do you have some good advices?

Response from Dr. Frascino


I don't agree with your doctor. See link below for a complete discussion of pregnancy involving an HIV-infected male and an HIV-negative female.
