Does anyone know on average how long after an exposure to hiv a person would start to show symptoms.
I started 2 days after with prostrate pain and pain in the penis.
About 6 days after and even now I have the following symptoms: mild tempreature 99-99.8, slight sore throat and my taste is altered, also pain but not sweling in the lymph node areas, pain in my joints and sore muscles and joints. Could these symptoms appear so suddenly
i have had several people tell me that symptoms hardly ever start immediately.
It just seems to be too much of a cioendence
any advice would be greatly appreciated
The symptoms of hiv cover a wide spectrum and can differ greatly between all people. Symptoms almost never occur within the first 2 weeks of being exposed, but can be as little as 4-12 weeks, or as long as a year or two, often dependent on how long the virus is dormant for.
Hi. Being scared isn't going to help in your case at all. Get educated. Next time, use a condom, latex and strong. Also get to know your partner and get tested together before sex if possible. It can take several months and sometimes years for true signs to show. But, if you get tested at least 1-3 months after exposure, you will know if you have been exposed. Being exposed doesn't mean you have aids, but that you carry the hiv virus, that causes aids. If your results are negative, and I pray they are, then get tested agin in 6 months. If they remain negative then you do not have hiv. The reason so many people don't know for years or months is because they don't get tested. So, get tested. That is the only way to know. Also, the symptoms of hiv are usually flu like systoms that are mild to moderate, and then later get worse in round 2. Keep in mind it is "flu season", and there are all types of flus that affect each person differently. Also, don't rule out a std. Go to the doctor and find out what's going on. The worse thing you could do, is not know the truth, and give it to other people.
Protected was not protected, the coloring on my penis from the flavored must have somehow been blood instead of lube.
2nd prc test came back positive
what do I do?
Should I live or end it before telling anyone
beautiful wife and 2 great kids.
Okay, just stop!!!! If you are really, really serious go to the emergency room and tell the doctor what's going on. You really sound like you have a std! Or possibly pnuemonia. Stop torchering yourself, please!!!!
