HIV rates rise FIVE-FOLD in a decade among menopausal women

HIV rates rise FIVE-FOLD in a decade among menopausal women HIV rates are rising among middle-aged women in England because of unprotected sex, according to researchers.

A study found the number of women aged between 45 and 56 who needed HIV treatment is five times higher than it was a decade ago.

Women in this age bracket may be going through, or have already been through, the menopause, which means they're unlikely to get pregnant.

They're still vulnerable to sexually transmitted infections, however, and experts suggest recklessness when it comes to contraception may be partly to blame. The Daily Mail
