What are symptoms and signs of aids 1-6 months after getting hiv?

What are symptoms and signs of aids 1-6 months after getting hiv?

May be none: Symptoms may be totally non-existent for years after getting HIV infected, because most are a result of prolonged progressive damage to the immune system. Signs are predominantly laboratory data, showing decrease in cd4 counts, increased viral loads, etc. There may be physical findings of enlarged lymph nodes or spleen but these are quite variable. ...Read more

Possibility of OHL without HIV? Always protected sex but unprotected oral with partner tested neg after 6 month test, symptoms started days after.

Possibility of OHL without HIV? Always protected sex but unprotected oral with partner tested neg after 6 month test, symptoms started days after.

I'd have to see you: However, before you go self-diagnosing oral hairy leukoplakia with zero history of any risky HIV behavior, you're going to need to get seen just for your peace of mine. If you have an actual oral lesion suspicious for this rare lesion, you'll visit an otolaryngologist. And the bottom line is you need an HIV test for peace of mind. You can get one tomorrow. Rest up, be brave, and I hope it's okay. ...Read more

I had some symptoms like lymph nods or a kind of herpes on my mouth , my HIV test was negativ after more than 6 month of the risk but I am afraid?

HIV negative: Without knowing exactly what tests were run it is difficult to say for certain, but the overwhelming chance is that you are HIV negative. The lesson is obvious. Only protected sex and only with individuals you "know" well. You can never be sure of honesty when it comes to sex, money, politics and life. Appreciate your concern but think you can relax. Be well. ...Read more

Can HIV symptoms start showing after three months since exposure?

No: Usually, HIV presents with a tonsillitis presentation about 4 weeks after initial exposure (fever, sore throat, body aches, lymph node enlargement) but then it subsides to emerge as aids years ago, although, cases of less latency (1-2 years) have been described. At 3 months, infected patients don't normally have any symptoms. ...Read more

Tested for HIV after 1 month and came out negative. Still showing HIV symptoms--- should I get tested again?

You could, but...: People who tell me they have "symptoms of hiv" rarely have hiv. If your test was a month after your last exposure, you can certainly get retested. But a test at one month is highly sensitive. ...Read more
