Prolonged Amenorrhea and Low Hip Bone Mineral Density in Women Living With HIV-A Controlled Cross-sectional Study.

Elizabeth M King, Ariel Nesbitt, Arianne Y K Albert, Neora Pick, Helene C F Cote, Evelyn J Maan, Jerilynn C Prior, Melanie C M Murray, ,

<h4>Background</h4>Women living with HIV (WLWH) have higher rates of prolonged secondary amenorrhea (no flow for ≥1 year) than HIV-negative women. Both having amenorrhea and being HIV positive are associated with lower areal bone mineral density (BMD). However, their combined BMD effects remain unclear. Therefore, we investigated prolonged amenorrhea and BMD ... Read more >>

Though evidence shows that Mobile health (mHealth) interventions can improve adherence and viral load in HIV-positive persons, few have studied the health care providers' (HCP) perspective. We conducted a prospective mixed methods pilot study using the WelTel intervention wherein HIV-positive participants (n = 25) received weekly interactive text messages for 6 months. Text ...
