Abstract

In this article, gynecologic conditions of increased importance in the HIV-infected woman are discussed. Women living with HIV may have an increase in menstrual disorders, lower genital tract neoplasias, gynecologic surgery, and sexually transmitted infections. The literature relevant to choosing a method of contraception for HIV-positive women is also discussed. With the advent of HAART, seropositive women are now facing issues around longevity, such as menopause and disorders of bone mineral density, as well as those associated with fertility.
