Can HIV patients have children without carrying the virus? How could this be achieved? This is a topic that is not regularly discussed, but it’s important to be informed. We want to share with you how an HIV patient can have a baby with the support of a fertility treatment.
According to INEGI, more than 300 thousand people have been diagnosed with HIV in Mexico since 1983.
This is a virus that directly affects the immune system, weakening it.
Thanks to the advances and technology in medicine, medications have been developed that prevent the virus from reproducing inside the body and it’s no longer so risky for a patient.
We invite you to read our blog post: What is a person’s fertile stage? We believe this may be an interesting topic for you.
Is it possible for a man with HIV to have a baby that does not carry the virus? The answer is yes, with the help of assisted reproduction treatment, where the sperm are separated from the virus and then used in the treatment.
Sperm washing is a technique where sperm are separated from the seminal plasma. This is because the virus isn’t found inside the sperm, but is found in cells such as lymphocytes or macrophages.
These sperm are then used during the couple’s recommended fertility treatment. This way the baby won’t carry the virus and there won’t be a risk.
