Description
Written by three experts with extensive experience helping people with HIV/AIDS, A Woman's Guide to Living with HIV Infection is a medically informational, comprehensive, and deeply compassionate resource for women with HIV and their families and friends. While addressing the entire range of health and emotional issues faced by people with HIV, the authors cover topics of special interest to women--gynecologic disorders, reproductive choices, contraception, and pregnancy. The authors offer clear advice on these and other crucial topics: Testing for HIV and coping with the diagnosis Finding a physician and preparing for the first visit Recognizing symptoms and preventing complications Understanding the latest treatment options, including new medical research and clinical trials Coping with gynecological infections and STDs Considering pregnancy and birth control Assuring breast, bone, and heart health Treating drug and alcohol dependence Dealing with partner violence and abuse other resources for people with HIV. The practical advice in this book can help the thousands of women diagnosed with HIV every year lead to fuller and healthier lives. The authors have succeeded in the challenging task of writing a book that will educate and empower women with HIV to fully participate in their care--and one that is both up to date and written at a level that is understandable to lay readers without being too simplistic. This book meets a great need within the community of women with HIV.--Judith S. Currier, M.D., UCLA Center for Clinical AIDS Research and Education, David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA
