    Hi Molebogeng

    ARV’s don’t interfere with a woman’s fertility. Therefore, you being positive isn’t an issue when it comes to trying to get pregnant.

    If you’re having problems with conceiving, you should speak to your doctor about this.

    Hi Dimakatso,

    HIV doesn’t affect a woman’s chances of getting pregnant. Therefore, you can have as many children as you choose to have.
