gel that prevents hiv transmission
Jul 29, 2012
I am hiv positive and my husband is negative, we want to have a child, is there a gel that can help my husband prevent the transmission?
Response from Ms. Southall
Hi There is no gel to protect your husband. This is a conversation to have with a HIV OBGYN specialist. You can have children but just need to ensure that you are the right treatment and that your virus is under control. We are close to having a microbicide to prevent HIV transmission but we are just not there yet.
I have worked with several women who have had children and in fact my co worker who is positive and her husband negative just had a baby a week ago. It is possible.
Be well and much luck, Shannon
