Common Questions and Answers about Hiv symptoms after infection

hiv

Avatar f tn Hi Doctors, My anxiety making me away from testing HIV. But I'm not sure I'm infrected or not , i had an unprotected sex with an massage therapist from bali which was just for 10-20 seconds without condom, after that i had sex with condom even that lasted for around 5 min and that was my first sex in life.
Avatar n tn I have not been tested yet (last test was several years ago and was negative) and am afraid to find out the answer, but assuming I am HIV+, how long would I be symptom-free? Are there any alternatives to HAART? I am scared to death of having to go on regular drug treatment, because of the side effects and the fact that I can't afford it. If I go to get tested, how am I going to face the result if it is positive? I know these questions are moot, but please humor me.
Avatar n tn what the the symptoms after affectin with hiv on 1st??after howmany days it appears and what symptoms appear after infected with hiv ??and in how many % people this symptoms occur??
Avatar n tn The symptoms of primery HIV infection come at a time or one by one?Like ,having headache,nausea,lymph node swelling,mouth ulcers,weight loss,loss of apetite,fever,cold,dry cough come at a time or one after the other starting from 2 weeks post exposure to 6 weeks post exposure?
Avatar m tn I had negative antibody test 6 weeks and 4 days after contact. (2.5 weeks after first symptoms) 1. Are my symptoms typical for acute HIV infection? 2. Is seroconversion the time of first symptom or when symptoms have disappeared? 3. Does antibody test make sense while seroconversion symptoms are still present? Or only after symptoms have disappeared? I clearly still have symptoms. 4. Does antibody test recognize antibodies at time of seroconversion or some time after seroconversion?
Avatar n tn e., five weeks ago). They lasted for a week. Could these be symptoms of HIV infection? Should I get tested? I'm very worried. Thanks for your help.
Avatar m tn Symptoms or lack of will never tell you anything about your HIV status. As you already know your test at 3 months post exposure will be conclusive.
Avatar m tn Hi, I posted a question a couple of weeks ago about whether I was at risk of infection from HIV after having protected (fairly sure) oral and vaginal sex with a prostitute. Please forgive me for posting again but I am a nervous wreck at the moment. I appreciate what has been previously answered about not trying to diagnose HIV from symptoms and the fact that my risk of hiv, if I was protected, is minimal. However, I have just noticed that I have a number of small dark marks on my face.
Avatar m tn Please let me know if this is symptom of syhpilis or HIV infection or HIV has progressed to AIDS? I am requesting the help of medical experts on this forum to guide me as what should I do to get it confirmed if it is AIDS or HIV or syphilis or any other STD!!!
Avatar n tn what was your possible exposure?
Avatar m tn Dear friends, as your aboundant experience and knowledge, do you think the above symptoms are typical HIV infection symptoms? Great appreciation for your help!
936016 tn?1332769204 Many of the questions we answer on this Forum and also the Freedomhealth Sexual Health Forum relate to anxiety about HIV and also possible early HIV symptoms. One of the main problems in relying on HIV symtoms themselves is that they are notoriously vague and almost all the symptoms may in fact be symptoms of a different disease. The best method always of diagnosing HIV is to have a modern HIV test.
Avatar m tn I just want to know if if this sounds like possible symptoms form people who know what they are talking about and are familiar with primary hiv infection. Thank you.
Avatar n tn Therefore, it really is not a realistic possibility that any symptoms you have are due to HIV, no matter how typical for acute HIV infection they may seem to be. Almost certainly your doctor was just being careful; I doubt he really suspects you were at high risk for either syphilis or HIV. Anyway, your symptoms don't suggest either HIV or syphilis. Neither causes lymph node swelling only in the armpits as the only symptom.
Avatar n tn i had protected sex with a prostitute through latex condem i also kissed i have bleeding gums.i also kissed,after three days i had this flu like symptoms and body aches.have i had hiv.these symptoms lasted for 3-4 days.
Avatar n tn My question is, would it be possible to develop symptoms just 2-3 days after sex if the other person were infected with hiv? Also, I know the chances of contracting hiv through vaginal sex are 1 in 1000, but what are the chances if you have inactive herpes?
Avatar f tn When i did get the flu like symptoms i assumed it was because of germs i got from smoking with other ppl since i did not have other symptoms of HIV like rash, muscle/joint pains or sore in the mouth and i got sick less than 6 days after the encounter. What do you think? Even now i have not had any symptoms of any other stds which makes me believe that he was telling the truth about not having anything. Even now i have not had symptoms of any other stds. Thanks so much.
Avatar m tn No, HIV symptoms occur between 2-6 weeks after exposure.
Avatar m tn unfortunately the condom got teared off, though i removed my penis immediately(say within 5-10 sec) but still i am very afraid of the HIV infection. I am very nervous from that day as i have some fever(very mild) & body ache after 2-3 days but no other symptoms. please do give me your advice what should i do in such case i would really be grateful for your kind support.
Avatar n tn I am not a doctor, But I can tell you that your symptoms do not sound like HIV symptoms. Also symptoms do not help in finding out your HIV status only a HIV test at 3 months will tell you if you were infected from this exposure. If it is a "Friend" ask her/him to test that would give you some peace of mind. Also the odds oof getting infected during a single episode is slim around 1 in 1000.
Avatar m tn 86 days is conclusive,you don't have HIV.Move along now.
Avatar m tn Also, the antibody test was done 15 days after the onset of symptoms so shouldn't antibodies have shown up at this time as I heard you will have antibodies already when you have ARS and I am thinking 15 days after the onset the antibodies should be showing up, if I do have an infection?
Avatar n tn Also have been finding it had to remember things.. am yet to show any other symptoms related to HIV. i have had a test and i still show negative...please tell me it six weeks now is the result true.....

Avatar f tn You had no risk. See a doctor for any symptoms you are still having but know they are NOT HIV related.
Avatar f tn about 3 weeks ago i developed a sore throat, cough and runny and stuffy nose. the symptoms have declined. but after two weeks of treatment i still have a slightly sore throat, facial pain. In your homest opinion, given the time frame and no other symptoms. how likely do you think it is that i have HIV?
