Is artificial insemination by husband the same in serodiscordant couples and in healthy couples?

By Mark P. Trolice (reproductive endocrinologist).
Last Update: 03/14/2019

Due to advances in sperm washing techniques and large medical studies, HIV serodiscordant couples can be offered IUI (intrauterine insemination) provided the semen sample from a HIV positive man is prepared in a reproductive laboratory capable of appropriate preparation of the specimen in order to maximize the reduction of HIV transmission to the woman and baby.
