Common Questions and Answers about Hiv symptoms in men after 1 year

hiv

Avatar n tn I am really wondering what the symptoms would be after 1 year. Would you notice that your skin has aged 10 years after being infected for 1 year. Would you have sores on your scalp. Is there anyone who is infected or has real knowledge as to what a person would notice after 1 year of infection. There seems to be a lot of info about what will happen 2 - 4 weeks after exposure but I can not seem to get an answer as to what I would notice after 1 year.
Avatar n tn Can anyone state if someone with HIV would have symptoms showing after over a year? Swollen nodes in armpits and groin?
Avatar m tn Less than 1% of the popualtion has HIV - for hetrosexual men and women the rate is far lower, in the neighborhood of 1 in 10,000 peole are infected. Then if your partner happended to be infected (unlikely) then their risk if infection you is still only 1 in 1000. Hope this is clearer.

5864161 tn?1381724181 Hi again its been 1 year since I got tested but my confidence in my results has been shattered. I have many symptoms acid reflux dry hands ear feels full wart on my face I never had problems like this before and I know these are all symptoms of pure imune health. I'm thinking of being tested again beause I don't want to go on thinking I'm nok and then find out I'm infected and its to late to take medicine to help me...
Avatar n tn what are the first symptoms in men and when do they show after being infected?Few days, weeks,months?
Avatar f tn Finally i decided last month to take test after 1 year of anxiety and i went to a famous lab in Egypt and considerd the biggest in the middle east and took a test . The test called : hiv antibody (aids) test and it's a cheap one . I gave my blood in the morning and got my result in evening . It came back ; negative My question is : does that test search for the antibodies of all strains and types of hiv ? And can that test gives false negative ?
Avatar m tn There is a test for trich in men, it is just that it is not always able to pick up the infection. Self checking can often make "symptoms" appear due to anxiety and irritation.
Avatar m tn I am 29, Male, 5 years ago I had vaginal sex (condom used) with a female sex worker. since then I didn't have sex with anyone. Last month I took STD testing. test was for HIV 1&2, Hep B & C, HSV 1&2, syphilis, chlamydia. All results were non reactive. Now I am worried about HPV. I know there no screening test for men. Can I assume hpv has been cleared in this time. I have not got any geintal wart ever.
Avatar m tn m glad you are proactive about hiv. chances you are hiv free - very high chance , in fact, and your symptoms are most likely due to stress, alcohol or something else entirely.
Avatar m tn HIV is inactivated in saliva, HIV is inactivated in air. Those are 2 reasons you and everyone else in 40 year HIV history can't have HIV from oral sex despite cuts, chapped lips etc. So you wasted your time testing. Symptoms aren't used to diagnose HIV and you have no medical training, so it is not surprising that you are puzzled trying to self-diagnose what a test has proven you don't have. Everyone gets flu but few have HIV.
Avatar m tn I was tested for HIV after 6 weeks and 12 weeks of exposure with “HIV quick test Abbott” in an international clinic in vietnam. Both results are NEGATIVE. At that time, the doctor advised me that I don’t need to be tested for Herpes since I did not have any symptoms. I am still very worried till this day every time I think if I am infected with Herpes or HIV. And I get very nervous just thinking about taking the test and waiting for results.
Avatar m tn most likely in a year you would have had symptoms for all of those if youre not confident in that you can get tested and expect accurate results
Avatar f tn Hi doctor, sorry to bother you but I went to see a nurse yesterday, she works at a clinic where they do rapid hiv testing and she told me it takes 6 months to 1 year to develop detectable antibodies for an hiv test.. Is that true?

Avatar f tn In addition, I forgot to mention that Gonorrhea might cause these symptoms 2 to 14 days after infection... but the odds of this are very low because this happens in cases of disseminated Gonococcal infection which only occurs in 1% of men and women. There's a higher likelihood you are experiencing simple flu symptoms and nothing more though.

Avatar m tn The high risk kind is what can lead to cervical cancer, and men can have that and have no signs or symptoms. The low risk kind is what gives you genital warts, and you can also have that and show no symptoms. If you do get symptoms of hpv, they can show within a month or two, or take years to show. About 80% will have HPV in their lifetimes, though most won't know it. Herpes sores typically show up within 2-20 days, but not always.
Avatar m tn m not sure about current estimates of the prevalence of HIV in London area men who have sex with men. One in 7 sounds too high for gay men in general, but it could be true for some, e.g. those who are frequently and outwardly unsafe (frequent anonymous partners, barebacking, etc). The GUM clinic will know; or you could look up information from the UK Health Protection Agency (HPA); I imagine they have a website and/or a public information phone number.
7736596 tn?1393779498 Glad I found this website that is so informative without being useless. So, I am a 25 year old bi-sexual guy from India. I've had several sexual encounters with both men and women, mostly men & protected. But let's just consider the possibility that I may have gone unprotected. November of 2013, I was screened medically for Dubai residency for any infectious diseases and thankfully I was free from any of them. I came to India soon after that.
Avatar f tn About a month after that I was experiencing flu like symptoms high fever, and exteme fatige, sore all over constipated could not have bowel movements and it was so bad that I couldnt eveb get out the bed one day.
Avatar f tn t sound to be risky partner. In industrialized countries most men with hiv are man having sex with men. I think the chance your partner has hiv is below 1% and even when he wpuld be infected the chance of transmission men to female with vaginal sex is less then 1 time per 500 acts. The sti I would think about for you is only gonno or chlamydia. I don't know which anti biotic has been given but if the correct ones your sti free. The symptoms you mentioned doesn't sound like sti.
Avatar m tn , you need to stop searching the internet for HIV symptoms. HIV/AIDS is statistically associated with almost all symptoms humans ever experience. You could replace "gastritis" with a hundred different medical conditions or symptoms like cough, headache, skin rash, neuropathy, diarrhea, hair loss, weight gain, weight loss, fever, or deformed fingernails -- I could keep going forever.
