I am thinking of marrying a HIV+ woman

Question

Hello. I am thinking of marrying a HIV+ woman. She has AIDS, but has no side effects to meds. Can she have kids? Thanks for the servive you provide.

Answer

HIV infected women do have babies and the risk of the infant becoming infected during pregnancy can be greatly reduced to about 2% if antiretrovirals are taken during pregnancy. You might want to consider artificial insemination to induce pregnancy in order to protect yourself from becoming infected.
