How to get HIV + woman pregnant from a HIV - man

Question

My girlfriend and I are getting married and we want to have a child. Could you tell me what we need to do? Would she be artificially inseminated with my sperm or do I have unprotevted sex with her?

Answer

Although transmission of HIV from a woman to a man during sexual contact is less efficient than transmission from a man to a woman, it still occurs (perhaps at a frequency of 0.05% per contact). Unprotected intercourse would thus carry a significant risk, and artificial insemination is the better way to go, in my view.

If she were to get pregnant, I would remind us that if she goes on anti-HIV therapy, this could virtually eliminate the risk of the baby becoming infected...
