Agency Stands by Advice on HIV and Contraceptive Use
February 17, 2012
Women with HIV or at high risk of infection can safely continue using hormonal contraceptives, the World Health Organization said Thursday. A study published last year found that using contraceptive injections doubled a woman's risk of contracting HIV and transmitting it to a male partner. WHO confirmed its recommendations after reviewing possible links between the products and HIV. Women and their partners also should use condoms to prevent HIV infection, WHO said.
