Our expert says:
In our experience the HIV status per say is not linked negatively to the success of IVF treatment. However the use of ARVs has not been clearly defined with respect to implantation failure and embryopathy and therefore I cannot categorically confirm or deny this. In our clinical practice we stop all ARV treatment shortly before embryo transfer and will not use ARVs in the first trimester of pregnancy.
