Your hubby's ID doc should be able to point you in the direction of the right OB to handle this.  May not be the funnest way to go, but highly effective I am told.

Good luck and bless you.

Hello Abcd1234, it is Eldon. First of all, I wish to extend to you a warm WELCOME here at the forums. Here you will find love, encouragement, understanding, communication, support, fun, and many answers to your questions relating to HIV/AIDS. This is a great site with a great group of individuals with a lot of information.

Here is a link that might come in handy when it comes to Sperm Washing:

Sperm washing is a process which has been developed for couples who wish to have a child, where the male is HIV-positive and the female is HIV-negative. The procedure reduces the risk of HIV transmission to the female partner and subsequently the unborn child.

I hope this is of some help to you.

Have the BEST Day!

Hey abcd. I am replying so I can kind of bookmark this!  My future wife and I will be doing this in the next couple of years!  Good luck to you.
