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.
"A clearly written, comforting guide for women newly diagnosed with HIV... The authors address a comprehensive range of health, therapeutic, emotional and financial issues facing those with HIV, with chapters focusing on specific concerns to women, including gynecologic disorders, menstruation, pregnancy and domestic violence." -- Cara Helfner, Medical Library Association
