Diseases and Disorders
People may talk about HIV and AIDS like they are exactly the same thing, but they are not. HIV is the virus that infects a person. With treatment, women with HIV can live long lives and be otherwise healthy. AIDS is the later stage of HIV infection when the body's immune system is damaged. The immune cells (white blood cells) are so few that they can no longer fight off severe infections and some types of cancer. People with AIDS are often critically ill and need medical treatment to prevent death. You cannot rely on symptoms to know if you have HIV. The only way to know for sure is to be tested.

Why you should choose a board-certified OB GYN
The American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ABOG) offers board certification in the specialty of Obstetrics and Gynecology and in five subspecialties. Board certification is a voluntary pursuit. Physicians are only required to secure a medical license to practice medicine in any given state. Physicians who choose to pursue certification are enhancing their medical knowledge beyond that required of state licensure.
