40% of People With HIV Report They May Want to Have Children

I do think the POZ write up missed the conclusion when writing up the summary this time. The authors conclusion included that:

These results highlight the need to regularly assess parenting goals, provide access to comprehensive reproductive services, and address prevention of vertical and heterosexual HIV transmission

Upon starting ARVs and again after 95 weeks of treatment, the participants were asked whether they might want children in the future. Overall, a respective 42 percent and 41 percent of the participants responded “yes” to this question at the two time points. At the study’s outset, 42 percent of MSM, 37 percent of MSW and 43 percent of women said they might want children in the future. At the 96-week point, a respective 41 percent, 37 percent and 43 percent of each group reported the same.

some of those numbers seem odd. Did 42% of those MSM really want children? And are these MSM considering using their own sperm (otherwise, as with adoption, the HIV status of the MSM wouldn't matter to the birth of the child)?

 I was surprised that such high numbers would be interested in having kids.


https://academic.oup.com/ofid/advance-article/doi/10.1093/ofid/ofy232/5098404

Background
In 1988, 1 of 3 women and heterosexual men living with HIV reported wanting children, but little is known about parenting desires of men who have sex with men (MSM) living with HIV. We examined parenting desires among persons initiating antiretroviral therapy (ART).

Methods
Of 1809 participants in ACTG 5257, 1425 women aged ≤45 years or men completed questionnaires about parenting desires at baseline and 96 weeks (wks) after initiating ART. Self-reported desires for children in the future (yes/unsure vs. no) and associations between baseline sociodemographics and parenting desires at 96 wks were examined using multivariable logistic regression, overall and within subgroups.

Results
The 1425 participants were: 36% white, 39% black, 22% Hispanic; median age 36 (IQR 28, 44); 70% MSM, 13% men reported sex only with women (MSW), 17% women (W). At baseline, 42% may want children in the future (42% MSM, 37% MSW, 43% W); at 96 wks, 41% may want children (41% MSM, 37% MSW, 43% W). At follow-up, about 10% of responses changed in each direction. In multivariable analyses, education > high school, <30 years, and having no children were significantly associated with future parenting desires among all subgroups. Among MSM, being black was associated with desiring children.

Conclusions
Approximately 40% of MSM, W, and MSW with HIV may want children, both at baseline and 96 wks after ART initiation. These results highlight the need to regularly assess parenting goals, provide access to comprehensive reproductive services, and address prevention of vertical and heterosexual HIV transmission.
