Privacy Warning:  Please realize that these forums are open to all, and are fully searchable via Google and other search engines. If you are HIV positive and disclose this in our forums, then it is almost the same thing as telling the whole world (or at least the World Wide Web). If this concerns you, then do not use a username or avatar that are self-identifying in any way. We do not allow the deletion of anything you post in these forums, so think before you post.

  • All members of these forums are, by default, not considered to be licensed medical providers. If otherwise, users must clearly define themselves as such.

  • Forums members must behave at all times with respect and honesty. Posting guidelines, including time-out and banning policies, have been established by the moderators of these forums.

  • We ask all forums members to provide references for health/medical/scientific information they provide, when it is not a personal experience being discussed. Please provide hyperlinks with full URLs or full citations of published works not available via the Internet. Additionally, all forums members must post information which are true and correct to their knowledge.

Welcome to the Positive Women Forum!

Welcome to the Positive Women Forum!

This forum is a safe, intimate place where HIV positive women can come to discuss issues that women deal with as part of being HIV positive. As many of these issues are of a sensitive nature, we ask that men do not post in this forum. (Thank you for your cooperation, men!)

We hope that women utilize this space for all those subjects they may not feel entirely comfortable bringing up in the other sections of the Forums. You can raise the issue of menstrual problems (without the risk of PMS jokes made at your expense), gynecologic issues, and any aspect of women's bodies and health. It's the place to talk about positive motherhood, dating, keeping your relationship hot or anything and everything else! This is the place to feel safe with any sensitive subject.

For further information on the POZ forums, including posting guidelines, please visit the Welcome Thread found in the Living with HIV forum.

We don't normally have replies to the Welcome threads... I forgot to lock it!

But thanks for your input ladies, glad you're happy with the new forum.

HIV is certainly character-building. It's made me see all of the shallow things we cling to, like ego and vanity. Of course, I'd rather have a few more T-cells and a little less character. Randy Shilts
