HIV & FERTILITY TREATMENTS
HIV IS A SERIOUS BUT MANAGEABLE CHRONIC DISEASE, AND WE WORK WITH COUPLES WHERE ONE OR BOTH ARE HIV-POSITIVE. WE USE SPECIALISED TECHNIQUES TO MINIMIZE THE TRANSMISSION OF THE VIRUS ONTO THE UNAFFECTED PARTNER AND UNBORN BABY.
In such cases, pregnancy is effected via artificial insemination when both partners, or only the woman, is HIV-positive. When only the man is HIV-positive, we have the facilities to wash the HIV from the seminal fluid, which normally contains cells that carry the virus.
The sperm is then retested for any remaining virus, and if it is HIV-negative, the woman can then be inseminated. Our holistic treatment specialists will be on hand throughout the process to assist you with advice and support.
