Heterosexual transmission is the most important way of transmission in our social environment and women are highly exposed to it. That is the reason why HIV is becoming more important in questions related to gynecology. The consequences of this infection and the development of gynecologycal disorders like Sexual Transmited Disease (STD) or cervical dysplasia make us focus in the follow-up of this infection to avoid these lesions progress to squamous carcinoma and Pelvic Inflamatory Disease (PID). The antiretroviral therapy (HAART) do not show to be more effective to improve the evolution of these lesions.
