Avatar f tn Man i sure hope your right because anytime now that i try to be happy a little thing goes off inside my head and says "you know you may have hiv and are gonna die"...then my day is shot and im back depressed! ..
Avatar m tn It is generally believed that ARS symptoms cannot start before a week and it's usually 10-14 days. It also would not cause such a brief illness, with fever resolving after only 3 days. Finally, although the thoat can be sore in ARS, it usually isn't such a prominent symptom as you describe. It sounds like you caught a cold or perhaps a strep throat. (The timing is consistent with catching it from the sex worker, but there's no way to know the source; it could just be coincidence.
Avatar m tn Hi i know HIV can't be diagnosed using symptoms though I am curious concerning the ars timeline. Some sites say 2-6 weeks others 2-4. Is it rare to get the ars 5-6 weeks or are they just covering every base? I red it's even rare at 4 weeks as it generally starts 14-21 days. What's the truth and is there links where I can get the proper truth on HIV?
Avatar m tn Overall, I am curious to know if persons who do indeed undergo symptomatic HIV ARS, what is the timeline? From what I have gathered, both in JAMA and online resources, and have become more interested in online articles and professional interactions, ARS timeline with regards to symptomatic HIV infection occurs roughly within a- 2-4 week timeframe (IF symptomatic HIV infection does occur). Thoughts? sites? any good journals (medically affiliated would be ideal). thanks again.
Avatar m tn not sure if this is 100% saw it in a few places. my though was a fungal or yeast infection that was in my mouth and penis and had built up some strength immunity over the last 2 months almost, bc it literally felt like side of my ribs, liver etc were a little tender for a period. I am on 11 day course of Diflucan from my personal Dr, and Nystatin, although not officially diagnosed with anything really.
Avatar n tn Just one follow up question- do the symptoms and timeline sound like they could be HIV? Obviously one always jumps to the worst case scenario..
Avatar f tn What are some of the reasons you have heard that cause people to infect others knowing their + status. Also I am wondering how I could start some HIV/AIDS awareness programs in my area that included testing and counseling. This really cool bus comes to our college every other week to do free HIV/ STD testing I think this would be cool for the community also. What are your views on this type of service?
Avatar n tn 4) Symptoms never overrule tests or exposure history in determining whether or not someone has HIV, and anyway all symptoms from HIV are the same as the symptoms from common, minor, everyday health problems. Therefore, symptoms almost never make a difference in our replies. 5) Finally, when someone is worried about having HIV, s/he should be tested, even if there is no real risk.
Avatar f tn flu like symptoms with herpes occur right before or with symptoms, not afterward. your symptoms you describe sounds like a cold, not the flu like symptoms of herpes. as you already know, nothing else you can do at this point. if you get a return of symptoms , be seen promptly for an exam, otherwise follow up with blood testing at the appropriate time. you can be tested for chlamydia and gonorrhea now if you haven't been already. syphilis anytime after 6 weeks post encounter.
Avatar m tn Seven days would be more than enough time for gonorrhea and chlamydia. 6 weeks is enough for syphilis.
Avatar m tn After my last result i was just happy to move on therefore i quickly excepted my result and follow the advice of the 12 week conclusive timeline, so i moved on. However my worries began to resurface as i began to notice symptoms of possible hiv. These symptoms were continues stomach pain with lost of appetite and weight loss, persistant headache, and numbness on the feet. Upon my research of these symptoms i began to notice these to be a common known symptoms in people living with hiv.
Avatar f tn I have never had pain like this in my life. Could this be ars or stress anxiety? My symptoms appeared in march of this year which was also the beginning of allergy season in CA. However, I have read online that the posterior muscle pain and trunk rash are common symptoms of ARS in males.
Avatar m tn HIV: 4+ weeks to be conclusive with DUO test. Syphilis: Definitely 4 weeks to be conclusive. Herpes: 6+ weeks to be conclusive. He then went on to add the reason for this "90 day mark" is that it serves as protection and allows doctors to cover their *****. I just wanted to know, if anybody else had a take on this, as this would GREATLY help diminish any worry I have remaining.
Avatar m tn The main chlamydia symptom in men is discharge of cloudy fluid from the penis, often small in amount and easy to miss, with or without mild discomfort on urination. Usually symptoms start 7-14 days after catching the infection. Probably about half of all men with chlamydia don't get symptoms at all. So you could just as easily have an infection since early August versus picking it up from your new partner.
Avatar m tn Although diarrhea can accompany acute HIV, it is rarely if ever the dominant symptom -- and in any case, HIV symptoms cannot start as soon as 3 days after exposure; 7 days is the minimum and usually it's 10-14 days. It sounds like you have a garden-variety gastrointestinal virus. So you really do not need HIV testing on account of either these exposures or your symptoms. On the other hand, a negative test might give you more reassurance than anything I can say.
Avatar m tn Okay thank you. Now we have an accurate answer.
Avatar f tn My risk was unprotected sex with a man I am female. I am getting tested soon after 28 day's. I am realy trying to find out if I have put other's at risk? Basically the timeline of hiv from infection to that person being infectious to other's? Could a person be infectious themselves withing 2 days? Or is there some kind of latency period where it has not taken hold yet?
Avatar m tn ARS symptoms happen 7 to 10 days after exposed to HIV but most do not have symptoms..Symptoms are never a valid indicator for HIV.. And remember we are getting into the cold and flu season and we all get sick at times I am sick now that dosent mean its HIV.... Relax and stop reading into things so much.. Dont believe the Hype !!

Avatar m tn Statistics in UK show that heterosexual infections now form the largest increase percentile wise in new HIV infections, the majority of which , however, are acquired abroad eg Africa or Asia. In North America there is a disproportionate incidence of heterosexual hiv acquisition in the urban Afro-American community. Why this is so I am not sure, as purely basis scientific knowledge , HIV should not have a ethnic minority-specific transmission rate. Its not a gay/black /IV user only disease.
