Of 70 fertility units licensed by the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority in the UK, 58 responded to a questionnaire regarding attitudes towards human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) screening and fertility treatment in HIV positive patients in November 1995.
Of these 58 centres, 23 only performed routine screening for HIV for both partners, 24 for hepatitis B and eight for hepatitis C. In the event of a positive result in the male, fertility treatment would be offered in the form of donor insemination (n=21), intrauterine insemination (IUI) after sperm washing (n=21), and in-vitro fertilization (IVF) (n=1).
If the woman was HIV positive, two centres would offer IUI and three centres IVF.
Nine centres had already provided treatment for couples in whom the male partner was HIV positive and two centres to HIV positive women.
