  1. Hi,
    Couples like yours are common and many safely have HIV negative children. This is usually done with treatment. Being on HIV treatment will eventually mean the risk of transmitted HIV to your husband is extremely low. If you become pregnant being on treatment will also help prevent your child becoming positive.
