HIV medication and research has developed rapidly since effective combination therapy was introduced in 1996. It is a totally different experience to be diagnosed today than even a few years ago.
HIV is now considered a chronic manageable condition and it is possible to lead a full, healthy and active life. If you want to start a family you can be a positive father without passing on the virus to your partner. If you want to be a mother, then you can have a natural delivery and your child will be born without the virus.
If you are positive, on medication and undetectable, it is unlikely that you can pass on the virus to any negative partner.
Effective medication also means that you can become “undetectable” <50 within a few weeks of being diagnosed.
