Can a woman be impregnated by an HIV-positive man without affecting the mother and baby?
Q: Can an HIV-negative woman be impregnated by a HIV-positive man without the risk of infection to the woman and the child?
A:It indeed is a tough question because of the risk of HIV transmission to the woman as well as the baby. However, in certain specialised Centres, the sperms present in the semen of HIV positive person are washed and then the woman can be impregnated artificially. Alternatively, if the HIV positive person is put on Anti-HIV drugs and the viral load in him can be lowered significantly, pregnancy can be achieved by normal sexual intercourse.
