Common Questions and Answers about Hiv aids symptoms

hiv

Avatar m tn You had both PROTECTED vaginal and oral sex. NO RISK FOR HIV OR STD's NO NEED TO TEST You can NOT contract HIV from an ingrown hair. And one does not contract "AIDS." You can acquire "HIV," which, if left untreated, will eventually become full blown AIDS. Symptoms are NEVER used to diagnose HIV and since you never had a risk, your symptoms are either being triggered by your anxiety or they are indicative of a completely unrelated underlying issue.
Avatar n tn Which world do you live in? you do not get "AIDS" like that; It is HIV you are talking about. And there are no doctors on this forum.

Avatar n tn You don't diagnose HIV by symptoms. HIV has no specific symptoms. Your HIV test will be conclusive at 3 months post exposure.
Avatar f tn Hello, Can u kindly explain me how many stages are involved in HIV positive? Can get AIDS as soon as being suffered for HIV?? Can HIV person be recovered like a normal person if taking a medicine regularly and obeying doc's suggestion properly??
Avatar m tn HIV is not something to be diagnosed by symptoms alone. That being said, ARS symptoms typically develop 2-4 weeks post exposure.
Avatar n tn In the past few years I've been susceptible to some respiratory symptoms. They usually start with heavy sneezing, then followed by a mild fever, and sometimes my nose will be running. This will last maybe 5 days, and I think on average I've had this once or twice a year. There was also one case of where I thought was bronchitis; I had some trouble breathing, and they did an x-ray and said they didn't really see anything. They gave me antibiotics anyway.

Avatar n tn My dr told me that there was a guy from Kenya who was hiv positive for 5 years but tested negative.How can I be sure that I dont have the virus.Im very worried....that I might progress to the aids stage and die without anyone knowing what of because of the gestation period.I had sex with a hooker 7 months ago but i have been sick ever since.
Avatar n tn do these symptoms sound similar to those of hiv/aids? and would a yeast infection caused by hiv happen within 2 months of exposure?
Avatar f tn I don’t have any kind of Hiv risks but I have all the symptoms of aids,my tongue is white always ,I have white lines in my cheeks it started about 5 years ago and still is.
Avatar m tn Yes, I had unprotected sex with my husband many a times in past several years.
Avatar m tn I have read many conflicting things on the internet about the asymptomatic time period of hiv, I have read the average amount of years before you develop AIDS without treatment is 10 years. What is the average amount of time before most people know they have hiv (develop symptoms that alert them) and does this differ by age at time of infection. Do people in their 20's differ from those in their 40's 50's and even 60's?
Avatar f tn First of all, you can't "catch" AIDS. AIDS is a syndrome, not a virus. Being infected with HIV can lead to the development of AIDS, which stands for acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. AIDS develops when HIV has caused damage to the immune system. Secondly, there is nothing that you have posted that is any risk for HIV. No risk means no exposure to HIV. Any symptoms you're having have nothing to do with HIV. If you're not well, then go see the doctor.
1569291 tn?1295603884 hey I had a virginal sex with a girl 2 weeks ago , I didn't know her before it was a one night stand. later on i came to know that she is a prostitute. I have done safe sex . If she has HIV +ve ( of which I have no idea) since i had oral sex with her too. can i get HIV through this? Since i broke up with my GF this is the first random girl i have done sex with. Now i have sore throat and headache , may be its due to anxiety and stress i am having.
Avatar m tn My question is - do you have any idea what is going on?Whats happened to me?Could I still be infected with HIv without hiv antibody?It is any medical explanation what is going on with me?Please help me?what I can do now,maybe you can sugest what kind of tests I should do more?
Avatar n tn You need to test at 3 months to get a conclusive test result. The answer to your second question is yes you can contract HIV without having symptoms.
Avatar m tn since then i am feeling a little scared because i have heard that people living with hiv aids witness no symptoms at all,, so even after testing within 6 months (december to july 2013) can i conclude that i am HIV negative,, why is this concern worrying that i may be HIV POSITIVE, Please do reply ,, waiting in anticipation for a favorable reply Kind Regards From Nepal
Avatar m tn your question is confusing hiv has acute symptoms not aids.if you are asking about hiv acute symptoms usually dont go more than 4-8weeks.
