Radio 4 programme explores HIV in women over 50

The increase in HIV amongst women was explored in women over 50 on Radio 4′s Women’s Hour last Monday.

The programme highlighted some big and important issues, such as lack familiarity with symptoms, not knowing you’ve been infected by a partner or former partner (and struggling with the consequental sense of betrayal), and financial security.

The number of women over 50 with HIV is increasing, and the health and financial implications are significant and a concern in many countries.

It’s very worthwhile taking time to listen to the programme which makes an interesting and moving discussion. As well, it prompts people – either female or male – to seriously consider seeing a financial planner to review budgets and pensiion provisions.

The programme can be found here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00vkpk8.

If you have HIV or Herpes and are looking for an HIV dating or Herpes dating website, then consider using datepositive.net, the UK’s first STD dating website.

Herpes outbreak during pregnancy

Q. What happens if I have an outbreak when I am pregnant?

Can having herpes affect my baby before it is born?  What if I have an outbreak when I am due to deliver? - A datepositive.net member

A. A baby can pick up herpes on vaginal delivery, and if there is an outbreak in late pregnancy this may be an indication for Caesarian birth.

Otherwise herpes in pregnancy is not a problem for the baby.  Medication maybe given if the outbreak is severe and after the first three months, but this would only be used in extreme cases. - Dr Laurence Gerlis
