Associated Conditions for Menopause

Excerpts on associated medical conditions for Menopause:

There may be a connection between HIV/AIDS and women in menopause. For example, women who are no longer worried about getting pregnant may be less likely to use a condom and practice safe sex. Some menopausal women have vaginal dryness and thinning. This means they are more likely to have small tears and abrasions during sex. This can put women at greater risk for HIV. Because women may live longer than men and because of the rising rate of divorce, there are a large number of widowed, divorced, or separated women starting to date. Because many of these women do not understand how HIV/AIDS is spread, they may be at risk. (Source: excerpt from HIV, AIDS, and Older People -- Age Page -- Health Information: NIA)
