SE2 EP8 [Encore broadcast]: HIV, Fatherhood & Fertility
Play • 17 min

For many years, becoming a father was out of the question for many men living with HIV. But times have changed and condomless sex and parenthood are now realities, thanks to advances in treatment and the evidence-based, stigma-busting messaging around Undetectable=Untransmittable, or U=U.

Tune in to hear Dr. Mark Yudin from the University of Toronto and Logan Kennedy from Women’s College Hospital talk about their research on men’s fertility desires and fatherhood, stigma-free parenting environments and the reasons why fertility researchers are turning their attention to men.

You will also get the chance to hear from Charlie, a Peer Researcher with the men’s fertility study led by Mark and Logan, who chose to remain anonymous for the interview. He speaks about how inspiring it was to interview other men and hear stories about their families and their desires to become parents, and later in the episode claims: “I believe that becoming a good father is one of the greatest endeavours in life and I forgot about that somewhere along the way in my diagnosis.”
