It may: An undetectable viral load does not eliminate risk of transmission. It’s best for you to use barrier protection (condoms) at all times. PrEP can be used if you are still at high risk, and especially if you are trying to fall pregnant (although you should first explore other methods - eg in vitro). Please speak to your Family Doctor for individualized advice

Talk to your OB/gyn : Biological changes caused by HIV, including systemic illnesses, stress, and weight loss, may affect the function of reproductive organs and result in infertility. HIV pregnancy is considered High Risk, and therefore this question would be better directed to your OB/Gyn. They can determine the best course and determine the precautions to take for a healthy pregnancy.
