It is different for every single person.Some people go years...decades even and never get sick..other people get sick within weeks or months.It all depends on the person,that is why early detection and treatment are so vital.

Untreated HIV more then 5 years.
I will say that after 5 years of being diagnoised, I am untreated, and completely healthy. I eat lots of garlic, and other HIV killing herbs, and well when I was diagnoised 5 years ago I had a VL of 52,000, and a CD4 of 392, and how 5 years later I have a VL of 13,000, and a CD4 of 589. I have experienced no sickness, and actually I use to get the flu every year, and stay sick all winter long, but since infection, I've not been sick once... So its actually made me healthier, so to speak. I dont recommend not taking treatment at this point, although I have read some studies that show that if a person doesnt get sick without treatment, then theres not a reason to start treatment. I am a living testimony of that research. God bless you and your health. Sincerely, Russell from E. Kentucky
