I don't think you show symptoms until it progresses to AIDS. Even then it can take anywhere from months to countless years before the virus really takes hold of the immune system. Magic Johnson has had HIV for years, and he's still going strong. Others succumb within a year.
There is ARS symptoms which is is all retro virals will cause at about 2 weeks after infection. Which is of course very broad flu like symptoms. At 3 year mark most people have swollen lymph nodes, then at 8 years they tend to get sicker more often etc.
good luck man...some people can go years...i would say that you should get a marrow transplant...this one guy was cured of AIDS by one.
HIV is not a disease that actually gives you symptoms or directly causes you to become ill. It develops into AIDS (Acquired immuno-deficiency syndrome) which prevents you from fighting off other infections after 10-15 years. If medically treated life expectancy is increased to about 32 years after the first infection by HIV.
I have heard years for symptoms, but just about six weeks for the tests to determine whether you are positive or not accurately.
It depends on what kind of symptoms you're talking about. A couple weeks for antibodies, a few months or a few years for a low T cell count, a couple days for tiredness and flu-like symptoms, 10-20 years for AIDS.
Showing of symptoms completely depends on the person. Some people can have HIV for 20 years and never show symptoms and it never turn into AIDS. Some people have symptoms very quickly.
the best determination of if a person has contracted HIV or has AIDS is a blood test. This is normally done and then repeated 6 months later.
6 weeks before anti-bodies appear in your blood and it will show up on a test
Depends, usually years in most cases.
You can have it and not show symptoms for as long as ten years.
