Below I’ll be showing you some early symptoms of HIV and some of the symptoms people may see.
Stage 1: Acute HIV Infection
Within the short period of 2 to 4 weeks after the person may have been infected with HIV, some people will be experiencing a flu-like illness. In which is the body’s natural response to HIV infection.
Flu-like symptoms can include:
Swollen lymph nodes
These symptoms can last anywhere for some few days to some weeks. Also some people will not even have any symptoms at all during this first early stage of HIV.
In case you are seeing some of these symptoms, please don’t assume you have HIV just because you have any of these symptoms—they can be similar to those caused by other illnesses. But if you think you may have been exposed to HIV, it will be better you quickly get an HIV test.
In case you’re test HIV positive , that’s not the end, there are HIV medicine which they will prescribe for you that will sustain you till your entire life and it will reduce the risk of transmitting it to your sex partner.
