This article presents information about the social, legal and medical issues that medical and non-medical practitioners in the UKi should consider in order to signpost options for people living with HIV (PLWH) who are not in a heterosexual relationship and want to become parents. Despite significant medical advances, increased medical awareness among HIV practitioners and the ability to live a full life with HIV, stigma still exists around PLWH wanting to have children. There is a lack of awareness among the general public and the non-specialist medical community about the realities of living with HIV, and the options available to become a parent.
