Signs and Symptoms

What are the most common signs and symptoms for women ?

Response from Dr. Sullivan

Women who are infected with HIV may remain asymptomatic for many years; symptoms when they occur may include fatigue, weight loss, swollen lymph glands, recurrent infections, opportunistic infections; women [like men] with HIV are also at increased risk of developing certain cancers such as lymphomas, and in women with HIV infection cervical cancer occurs with increased frequency. JLS.
