Hello...HIV doesn't mean a death sentence. You can have children. I have been positive for 18 years...married for 13 years...but I'm divorcing now. However, my husband is negative and so is my beautiful miraculous four year old son. My husband and I only used protection maybe the first year of our God has truly blessed all of us in our marriage. I am not sure what your health situation is like or what meds you are on, but I would suggest that you look after your health first. When you get that stabilized, then look for a mate. If you decide to marry an HIV positive person, verify that the meds she's on are a Category B no more than Category C meds...since anything more than C will cause severe birth defects. Lastly, there's always adoption. If your doctor is not encouraging - get new ones. You need a (no pun intended) a positive support system. I wish you the best...any questions shoot me a message.

i totally agree.i had my daughter 2 yrs ago (that's when i found out} well i had some unexpected problems and she came early and she was not spared this virus.i too want to have another child.its just that u have to be prepared for either results of the child's condition.u could look at my baby girl and you can't even guess she has it. she does everything like any other toddler, so keep the faith
