From its initial presentation in the early nineteen eighties until 1996, HIV-1 infection almost inevitably led to AIDS, which was a death sentence. Because of the short life expectancy, patients were advised against pregnancy. The improved prognosis of patients with HIV-1 infection following the introduction of highly active antiretroviral therapy in Western society has lead to an increased desire of couples of which either or both partners are HIV infected to parent a child. This thesis aims to clarify reproductive issues in HIV-1-infected men.
