I think the HIv forum could most help you. If his HIV problem is not in good control, there may be good reasons not to decide to try to fall pregnant by him, including the fact that this by definition would require unsafe sex and risk your also becoming infected ( and a child needs parents ) --- I don't think the CD4 count would necessarily affect his fertility. So isn't the main question the wisdom of wanting to become pregnant by him at this time, rather than whether it is possible ?

stressed - i hope your boyfriend had a very good reason to check his CD4 count! If he didn't tell you that he is hiv positive you can have him arrested. People just don't go out of their way to check their CD4... think about it

Sperm count or CD4 count?

CD4 has something to do with HIV.
