ugh, I really wish would use "people first language" ALWAYS put the person before the diagnosis. "Can people living with HIV have babies?" Saying the same thing, but with less stigma.

I am positive and my wife is negative. We did sperm washing and artificial insemination and will be delivering in 3-weeks. Anything is possible with support! It's not easy but it's possible.

Wow, I am in a health care field and after reading info from your site, I feel like an HIV dummy. I just recently renewed my professional license and still this information hasn't streamed down to my level. I like that this site is easy to read and navigate. I took care of a "diagnosed" HIV patient today that is taking care of himself and he takes 1 medication. Remembering back to my school days and the dental textbooks made you crazy about what an HIV/AIDS patient's mouth would look like. Education and a compassionate open mind is the key to unlocking any disease and it's cure. I always try to keep an open mind but today YOU educated me. Thank you and keep on keeping on.

I found out I had HIV -when I was 5 months prego... I found a great Infectious disease doctor.... Who worked w the doctor I planned to deliver my baby... That was 2002...

I'm glad to say.... With our action plan... I had a newborn baby that was as healthy as I dreamt... My baby was fine... Never had the antibodies in her system... She is 12yrs old and driving me nuts, lol..... But she does know she was my families miracle baby....

Talk to your doctor.... And know IT WILL BE ALRIGHT....
