Medical issues faced by HIV-affected couples include transmission risks between partners and between mother and child, as well as the technologies and procedures available to reduce those risks. Assisted reproductive techniques discussed are artificial insemination, in vitro fertilization, intracytoplasmic sperm injection, self-insemination, and timed intercourse. It is important that physicians be aware of reproductive options available to couples affected by HIV and be prepared to engage in nonjudgmental dialogue with patients. This review is the result of a literature search performed to identify useful information to counsel HIV-serodiscordant and HIV-seroconcordant couples facing decisions on reproduction.
