Women and HIV/AIDS
When a woman has unprotected sex, semen stays inside of her body for three to five days. If the semen is infected with HIV, then it can infect the woman in the span of those five days.
Women tend to get blood transfusions more often, especially regarding difficulties that may rise during pregnancy and while giving birth. If the transfusion blood is infected with HIV, then the woman may also get infected.
Women who have a sexually transmitted disease have a greater chance of getting infected by HIV. STDs increase the chance of getting infected by HIV, especially in the case that there are ulcers around the sex organs.
