People with HIV have the same hopes and desires about having children as anyone.

Whether single or in a relationship everyone has the right to make their own informed decision about whether or not to have children.

Advances in medications and increased knowledge about HIV has meant people are living longer, healthier lives. Having children has become an option which more people with HIV are choosing.

Many people with HIV conceive without difficulty and have healthy pregnancies and babies, although at least one in five people, as in the general population, will have some issues around fertility.
