Last year, Dr Richika Sahay Shukla, Director & Chief IVF specialist at India IVF Clinic, met a married couple faced with an uncommon fertility challenge they wanted to safely overcome.

The husband is HIV positive and the wife is not, so to achieve their dreams of having a family, Dr Richika counselled the couple to undergo in vitro fertilization (IVF) and a technique known as “sperm washing” to keep her and their baby free of infection. “Plenty of patients have conceived beautiful, healthy, HIV-negative babies by the use of technological advancements in ART ,” said Dr Richika.

The husband and wife she first met with last year ultimately delivered a healthy and HIV negative baby.

The number of HIV infected people is rising but what is more disturbing is that over 80% of these people are in their reproductive age group. If any of them want to attain parenthood, natural conception may not be their best bet. Thanks to India IVF Clinic which is helping such people to start their parenthood journey by using technical advancements in assisted reproduction technology,

Let’s be more informed on how assisted reproduction can help HIV infected people achieve parenthood through some commonly asked questions:

Can an HIV positive couple have children?

Yes, HIV-positive individuals can have children, thanks to assisted reproductive technologies. Seropositive persons now have access to medicines and treatment options, making it easier for them to consider starting a family.

What happens if the male partner is HIV infected?

Yes, you can utilise your sperm during IVF therapy if you're an HIV-positive male contemplating it. Advances in ART have made it possible. India IVF Clinic works with HIV-positive male intended parents on a regular basis. This method entails separating motile sperm from the rest of the ejaculation using sperm washing, followed by insemination of the washed sperm into the egg via IVF-ICSI.

What is the treatment procedure in case of female HIV patients?

Antiretroviral therapy followed by in-vitro fertilisation can enable female HIV positive patients who desire to become mothers to have a healthy pregnancy. To reduce the chance of infection transfer to the kid, the woman is kept on medication throughout her pregnancy.
IVF treatment is a godsend for HIV patients since it allows them to become parents.
