Surrogate?
      #178003 - 03/02/06 03:51 PM

I too have always wondered about the possibility of a + woman having a child that is - , but I never hear talk about using a surrogate? If you have the egg and sperm both implanted in a surrogate, the baby will not come in contact with the + mother's blood, or am I wrong in this? I realize that using a surrogate can be terribly expensive, but what type of option is this???

I guess that could be a possibility. It does take away the whole pregnancy experience. With medications and proper care, HIV+ women are already having HIV- children.

but thats not always a sure thing.
I'm talking about a 100% chance of having a negative child.
And yeah it takes away from pregnancy
But really, when your options are experiencing pregnancy or ensuring your child is going to be HIV negative.
I think I'd choose a healthy child.
