Ars Symptoms Hiv
Are oral thrush, dry mouth and vaginal thrush common ARS symptoms for HIV? & what are the chances that I contracted HIV from RECEIVING cunnilingus?
Hiv infection is caused by a retrovirus....This retrovirus binds to CD4 cells (for the most part). You may detect the virus by several different methods. An elisa test (enzyme linked immunosorbent assay). You may also detect it by doing a test referred to as a western blot (a gel protein electrophoresis). Thirdly by pcr (polymerase chain reaction) which ...Read more
I'm 26 year old heterosexual and I was wondering if cold symptoms are considered as hiv ARS hiv symptoms? I have nasal congestion, minor sore throat.
Hmmm....: It has to be viewed from the other direction. Because every person on Earth gets cold symptoms, one does not consider cold symptoms a sign of some other, bigger disorder. Likewise, everyone sneezes at least once a week. So, don't think of a weekly sneeze as a sign of a bigger disorder. Worry only if there are unique signs of a bigger disorder, not signs that everybody has. ...Read more
ARS symptoms typically start 10-20 days after acquiring HIV. To my knowledge it never takes as long as 6 wk.
And don't I recall your username, previously assured that your negative tests show you weren't infected? HIV test results always overrule exposure history and symptoms. Apologies if I'm wrong. In that case, feel free to post a new question with more detail so I can give a helpful response. ...Read more

Be tested!: It's pretty clear that you need to be tested. Also, you need to prevent exposure - safe sex is the only kind of sex that makes sense for so many reasons. While being tested, ask your questions and learn how to take care of yourself. Life will be less anxiety provoking when you do. ...Read more

Can lymph nodes be swollen more than one month in case of HIV ARS? Other symptoms gone after 6 weeks. If lymph nodes are still swollen so no HIV?
Oral thrush 14th day after possible HIV exposure. Is it ARS symptom? P24 Combo on13th day; index value 0.1& nonreactive. No other symptoms. How reliable?
HIV 1&2 P24 combo 13th day. Index value 0.1&non-reactive. Oral Candiasis (tongue) on14th day. Is this ARS? No other symptoms so far. How reliable is test?
Very reassuring: I think this is a duplicate question, same answers. Oral candida is not likely (not the same as white coated tongue). But even if candida, it is too soon for it to be from an HIV infection caught only 2 weeks previously, and is never the only sign of ARS. Your test is about 90% conclusive that you don't have HIV. Have another combo test at 4 weeks to be certain, but in meantime really no worries. ...Read more
Hi, how risky is unprotected oral sex on me for HIV? Also how risky is protected vaginal sex? My only symptoms are dizziness and mild headaches since day 4 after exposure each day until now (day 10)...are these symptoms of ARS?
No risk, not ARS: Oral sex is safe sex in regard to HIV; there has never been a proved case of transmission mouth to penis. Properly used condoms are 100% protective for vaginal sex, if the condom doesn't break. ARS doesn't cause dizziness or headache, and cannot cause any symptoms at all sooner than 10-14 days after exposure. And HIV is rare in UK women. Your symptoms may be just anxiety. No HIV test needed. ...Read more

One does not get HIV by putting this into their mouths. In previous questions you have already been taught that your symptoms do not in any way represent AIDS or ARS. ...Read more
