HIV+ women hit harder by menopausal symptoms
As women infected with HIV live longer, new evidence is suggesting that menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes may affect them worse than women who don't carry the virus. "Perimenopausal HIV-infected women experience greater hot flash severity and greater hot flash-related interference with daily activities and quality of life, compared to non-infected women going through menopause," report researchers led by Sara Looby of Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston.
