...: When someone is first infected with HIV they can have a flu-like illness. People can live many years without having any symptoms until their immune system gets weak from HIV and they develop an opportunistic infection (like thrush or pcp) or cancer. If concerned about HIV exposure, see a doctor about getting tested. There are effective treatment options for hiv.
