Abstract

Science has made great strides in understanding the management of the many gynecologic conditions that affect HIV-positive women with an increased frequency. As HIV-infected women's life expectancy continues to lengthen, new treatments are necessary for recurring conditions, such as lower genital tract neoplasias. The medical field has much to learn about the interaction between sex steroids, HIV-infection, and the immune system. As knowledge grows, clinicians will be better equipped to counsel women about contraceptive issues, pregnancy, and menopause.
