So true. Hoentsy and everything recognized.
Most people who have HIV, the virus that can lead to AIDS, have no symoptms for several years. Some people get flu symoptms within a few months after infection, but there is no way to tell the difference between flu symoptms caused by HIV and flu symoptms caused by flu.Testing can detect antibodies to HIV within 3 to 6 months after someone gets infected. (More than 98% of people who have HIV would test positive within 3 months. Very rarely, it may take up to 6 months for someone to test positive.)IMPORTANT: Within a day or 2 after someone is infected, they can pass the virus on to other people. This is long before symoptms would appear, and before they would test positive. Also, HIV is not transmitted 100% of the time. Someone may be exposed to HIV several times and not get infected. However, it is also possible for someone to get infected by just ONE exposure.
