    Go and get tested and stop dealing in hypotheticals.

    It´s not fun, but hiding is not going to help anyone.

    Really. Do it.

    Having unprotected sex is just about the dumbest thing you can do. Having unprotected sex when you don't know your status with the goal of getting a girl pregnant is the dumbest thing you can do.

    Yes, if the mother was negative and you infected her there is a possibility the fetus would also be infected. Good luck being the father when the mother learns she and her baby got HIV from someone who couldn't bother to get an STI screening. And what an A+ father he would make. Couldn't bother learning his status means he couldn't bother to do all sorts of other things for the health and happiness of the mother and child. He might as well just chop off his dick before he inflicts any more misery on the world.

    There, how is that hypothetical for ya?

    I´m not being hypothetical: get tested. If you are pos then the earlier you get medical attention the better.

    On Munchies ma love, he doesn't wear protection, he doesn't know his status, he doesn't want to know, he doesn't care, he's just hoping to ruffle feathers cause he's not to bright and really doesn't care about anyone but himself.

    Your semen carries the virus, while your sperm carries your genes.
    So in the end: you get the mother infected, while she has a 75% chance (during pregnancy) of not passing the virus to her child (with daily medications) and a 60% chance of not passing it during childbirth.

    Musclejock,

    If you are asking this question because you had unprotected sex with a woman and she is now pregnant, you need to get tested now and again in 90 days and let the baby's mother know that she and the baby may be at risk. For the sake of everyone involved, I hope our question is hypothetical.

    Men can actually undergo a process called sperm washing that separates the virus in the semen from the sperm. However, for it to be effective, it must be done before insemintation.

    ok as a part biology geek hiv is only present in the semen liquid and not your artificial, biological sperm cells. It is possible to to have a child that is not positive if you and the mother take precautionary steps during the fetus development and during labor to lessen the chances of transfer of the virus via blood during birth. If you are considering having a child and you dont know your status you could have this new treatment called "sperm washing" if you turn out to be positive--i goggled. It is possible but please get multiple doctors advice.

    I think he meant to say, "You're a real shit for playing both fields and not knowing your status."

    Not necessarily.....but dude....RealJock Forum is totally the wrong place to ask these kind of questions. You have to tell the mother of the child to get tested and make sure the fetus is tested too, frequently. By amniocentesis during the early stages of the pregnancy, and later, as the child grows, from the blood

    *rolls eyes at most of the responses*

    If an HIV+ man has sex with an HIV- woman the chances of transmitting the virus and the mother becoming infected is 1 in 1000; less than a percent. Even if the mother is infected the childs infection rate is low even without the drugs because the placental barrier isn't THAT porous. So general answer, probably not.

    Both partners should get tested.

    All sexually active people should be getting tested at least every six months.

    People who are having multiple partners a month should be getting it done every three months.
