Women with HIV who take HIV treatment as prescribed and have an undetectable viral load can live long and healthy lives.
This also means that as women with HIV age, they could face other health issues common in all older women, such as heart disease or cancer.
Women with HIV may face other challenges related to pregnancy or breastfeeding. HIV can also affect women’s health in unique ways, including having menopause symptoms earlier or a higher prevalence of cervical cancer.
Knowing what to expect can help take care of yourself and improve your quality of life.
