Women who are HIV+ live longer thanks to new medications and more research dedicated to the disease. As a result women live as long into their menopause years.
Research was conducted to see if the medication women were on for HIV had an effect on their hormonal changes during menopause. This study was taken at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York.
Women around the ages of 42 were cross examined and went through interviews to classify various demographic factors. A total of 536 women were studied, half were infected and the other uninfected to compare results.
