Hi, Thank you for staying by her side. My husband is negative and am so blessed to have him in my life. You can have a very happy and healthy life together. The most important things is for her to get in with an HIV specialist for both treatment and pregnancy. We know that if someone on medication with an undetectable viral load the risk of transmission is very small. Women living with HIV can have children if she is on treatment throughout her pregnancy the chances of the baby being born with HIV are less than 1%.
Be well and stay safe, Shannon
