Can positive people marry and have a family?
I’m positive, whereas my partner is negative, can we marry and have a family? Will I be negative if I take medication?
Thanks for getting in touch.
If you want to get married as well as have children, then yes, you can. Your HIV shouldn’t be a barrier to this. HIV is now easy to control and once on effective treatment, and your viral load is undetectable you can’t transmit HIV to a sexual partner. Please see here: https://i-base.info/u-equals-u/ Therefore you can have kids.

With regards to becoming negative, your HIV is controlled by taking ARVs. If you were to stop taking meds, your viral load would rebound and your HIV would no longer be under control.
