Hello Anonymous writer,
First of all, I would like to apologize for being late to your response. Due to technical errors we just were unable to respond and for that I
owe you an apology. However, I am ecstatic that you wrote in to us. Your question has sparked many questions from many other people for many
years and personally for me it hits right at home.
HIV is a tricky virus. It will show you some symptoms of its presence but than it will lie dormant in a person’s body before revealing itself
There are two periods in the stage of HIV where it will show signs of infection; and the first period is when the person is first infected.
This is known as the Acute Viral Syndrome and with this syndrome it may take a few weeks after infection before a person starts showing signs
which are some of the symptoms that you are experiencing. After a few weeks, it’s gone. No more symptoms, no more stress in which gives a person
a false sense of hope because they begin to believe that everything is alright and continues to go on with their lives. While they are living
life (as we all should) the virus continues its cycles of development causing it to increase in numbers and gives the opportunity to destroy a
person’s immune system.
The second period is when the person develops the AIDS disease which occurs later down the road. However, please remember that just because a
person inquires the flu virus it does not mean that they are HIV positive it could mean that they just simply have the flu.
The only sure way that a person is positive is to go and get tested. A person can get tested after 90 days of having contact with blood or semen
to find out their HIV status. It’s important that everyone knows their status so they can get into treatment if they are positive. Getting tested
is easy, rapid and in many cases “FREE”! So, check your Telephone directory for the nearest HIV clinic and go get tested.
