Abstract:

This one-page handout with accompanying video and audio recording educates people about concerns that women may have when taking antiretroviral therapy (ART), a combination of HIV medicines used to treat HIV infection. It explains that HIV medicines may give women more severe side effects, could make hormonal birth control less effective, and can require adjustment during pregnancy. The document recommends that pregnant women work with their health care provider to find a safe and effective HIV regimen.
