    Hi Jackie,

    Being HIV positive shouldn’t be a barrier to having a family. As long as your husband is on treatment and has an undetectable viral load, then the risk of him transmitting HIV to you will be close to zero. Please see the results of the PARTNER study for more info:

    Therefore, if you would like to try and conceive the natural way, then you can. Please also see Q6 here:
