Poppy and Ted, a serodifferent couple (Ted is living with HIV and Poppy isn’t), talk with their provider, Emily Miller, MD, MPH, about their options for having a baby. Dr. Miller tells them about adoption, sperm donation, and having biological kids. She tells them about TasP (Treatment as Prevention), which is a form of prevention where the partner who is living with HIV maintains an undetectable viral load. They discuss the added benefit of PrEP (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis), a pill that the negative partner can take once a day to prevent HIV transmission. Dr. Miller tells the couple about side effects, taking PrEP while pregnant, and how to start PrEP.
