  • HIV Menopause Clinic

  • The HIV Menopause Clinic is committed to helping HIV-positive women who are also experiencing menopause. Antiretroviral therapy has revolutionized the treatment of individuals infected with HIV and has caused dramatic reductions in morbidity and mortality.

    The result is a rapidly growing population of women who will experience menopausal transition and other health matters related to aging while HIV infected.

    Menopause may induce many of the same metabolic changes that are being observed with HIV infection, which may complicate the health and quality of life of aging women with HIV infection.

    The HIV Menopause Clinic provides comprehensive evaluation of women’s gynecological and bone health, and evaluates risk factors for cardiovascular and metabolic complications. It also gathers data about how menopause affects those with HIV and its treatment.

    The clinic’s multidisciplinary team includes an obstetrician/gynecologist, an infectious diseases specialist, a nurse and a medical assistant.
