How long does it take for someone show symptoms of hiv?

Depends...

Human_immunodeficiency_virus
The answer depends.... If you are talking about symptoms of acute HIV, these may occur within 2 to 4 weeks of infection and may last a week. However, not everyone gets the symptoms of acute HIV. If you are talking about symptoms of HIV associated with later more advanced disease, then usually this may take a few years before seeing symptoms like weight loss, fevers, night sweats.

How long could hiv symptoms occur?

Complicated answer

Human_immunodeficiency_virus
The question you asked is a difficult one. Only about 30% of people at initial infection will experience any kind of symptomatology such as night sweats lymph node swelling or diarrhea. In general terms it's believed to take anywhere from 5 to 10 years to effectively dismantle the immune system enough to start getting what we referred to as opportunistic and life-threatening infections.

Please tell me how long it takes for to show the signs of hiv?

Varies per person.

Human_immunodeficiency_virus
Within a few weeks of being infected with HIV, some people develop flu-like symptoms that last for a week or two, but others have no symptoms at all. People living with HIV may appear and feel healthy for several years. However, even if they feel healthy, HIV is still affecting their bodies, and can be spread to other people. Swollen lymph glands and fatigue are common symptoms after a few years.
