The HIV Menopause Clinic, part of the Immunology Center, is committed to helping HIV-positive women deal with the combination of their disease and the onset of menopause.
The clinic focuses on health related to aging, HIV-infected women. We provide a comprehensive evaluation of women's gynecological and bone health, and review risk factors for cardiovascular and metabolic complications. The clinic also gathers data about how menopause affects those with HIV and its treatment.
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 and this may complicate the health and quality of life of aging women with HIV infection.
General counseling is provided based on individual needs. Our comprehensive team comprises an obstetrician/gynecologist, endocrinologist, infectious disease specialist, nurse and medical assistant.
The clinic is open the first Thursday of each month from 1:30 to 4 p.m.
