Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • The answer to your query is yes, an HIV-positive person can marry an HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) negative. A majority of the countries have no legal objections against marriage, although a few have a law to declare your HIV status to the partner.
  • When the HIV-infected person takes the antiretroviral drug regularly and has an undetectable HIV viral load, this greatly reduces the risk of transmitting the virus to the partner.
  • Consistent and proper use of condoms every time you have sex is advised. HIV-positive partner should continue with antiretroviral treatment regularly.
  • For HIV discordant couples, for future pregnancies, recommended techniques are sperm wash, in combination with in-vitro fertilization and intrauterine insemination. These are legal in some countries but not all.
