Serodiscordant couples whose man is infected by human immunodeficiency virus have actually induced sterility by condom use. Since 2001, in France, assisted reproduction in serodiscordant couples has been facilitated thanks to the decree of 10th May 2001. In spite of the immense social and scientific advances in Assisted Reproductive Techniques, in such couples, limitation of care remains in certain cases. This study reviews current practices in France and other countries. Limits due to present reproductive and virological methods or legal conditions are underlined. In agreement with current scientific knowledge we suggest new modalities of reproductive care in serodiscordant couples with HIV infected men.
