Mark Fisher (Body Positive) and Jane Bruning (Positive Women) who reside in New Zealand collaborated with the New Zealand Aids Foundation in creating Sperm Positive the first HIV-positive Sperm Bank for donors. All in the effort of breaking down the stigma and creating awareness that people with HIV can have children without passing it on to the other party or the child-to-be.
We leave no stone unturned, as we dissect what U=U means (Undetectable = Untransmittable). How long can HIV live outside the human body once exposed to air? We chat about clinics freezing sperm and storing them for 6 months and retesting sperm and is this is an outdated methodology, we talk about clinics discrimination against gay men being donors. We look into the concept of spinning sperm and is it still relevant. We also looking at recipients and donors protecting themselves from HIV by visiting the doctor and being prescribed PrEP (Pre-exposure prophylaxis) plus much more in this educational packed episode.
