Not every fertility clinic has the ability to quarantine a specimen for sperm washing, but the option DOES exist! HIV positive men can undergo sperm washing to reduce the presence of HIV infected material (semen) from the sperm sample and avoid transmission or reinfection to their partner.
Check out this HIV and Sperm Washing article on FertilityAuthority.com for more information and contact our Patient Care Advocates at 1-855-955-BABY (2229) to find a clinic near you that washes sperm for couples with concerns about HIV.

Is it really possible to wash our sperms.

It is possible to wash the sperm of the seminal fluid which is generally the carrier of the virus. Removing that reduces risk. They have been doing this in Europe routinely and have no infection transmitted.

Hi kim, this is a great news. I would be discussing/forwarding this link to my friend. He is HIV positive, but I guess this shouldn’t stop him from being parent. I googled for this thread and came to know that this is the great way of conceiving a baby without passing the virus from the father to the mother or child. However, still it doesn’t offer 100% protection from HIV virus; correct me if I am wrong. Also I am wondering about conception rates after this procedure. I guess it would be expensive and wonder whether insurance covers it or not. What’s a general scenario? Any info further is welcome.

A father that is positive and a mom negative or both positive can have a child the natural way as well.
They will need to discuss with there providers. The patient needs to be on Medication as well as there infected partner or non infected partner.
There CD4 count Need to be good and Viral Load needs to be undetected.
