Hiv Early Symptoms - Detecting Early HIV Symptoms

stage virus infected infection

Early exposure to the human immunodeficiency virus, or HIV as it is more commonly shortened, can result in early HIV symptoms within the first two to four weeks after becoming infected. This stage of HIV is known as primary HIV infection. Doctors also refer to this stage as acute retroviral syndrome.

HIV’s early symptoms during the acute retroviral syndrome stage do not occur in everyone. In fact, most people will not develop early onset symptoms of HIV. For those that do, the symptoms are vague enough that they are often mistaken for other viral conditions, such as the cold and flu. These early symptoms include fever, headache, rashes, and fatigue. It is also quite common for people infected with HIV to display swollen lymph glands at the start of their infection. Sore throat, nausea, diarrhea, vomiting may also be common. Additionally, it is not uncommon for those infected with HIV to experience muscle pain as an early HIV symptom.

The early HIV symptoms will typically last one to two weeks. By week three, the immune system will kick in. The immune system has not been torn down yet at this stage, and is still able to be beneficial to your body. As a result, the initial symptoms of HIV fade.

Some might think that the early stage is not as infectious as later stages, because the early symptoms of HIV pass so quickly and the infected person becomes symptom free for a period of years following the initial infection. That is completely false. This is a very infectious stage of the HIV life cycle and anyone who comes into contact with an infected person’s bodily fluids during this time can very easily contract the disease. Genital fluids in particular have a large amount of HIV virus present during this stage.

After the initial early HIV symptoms fade, the virus continues causing severe damage in the body. It attacks, infects and destroys cells of the immune system, making the body unable to fight off other types of infection. The amount of time it takes for the next round of HIV symptoms to show up depends on how healthy your body was to begin with, and how healthy your immune system was. It may be only a few months until you display further symptoms of HIV, but it may be another ten years before the next state of symptoms become present.

By the time that the HIV virus is able to show up in the blood during tests, at least three to six months will have passed since the initial infection. During this time, it is unlikely for any infected person to have any symptoms. This is why it is important, if you suspect you have been exposed to the virus, to discuss testing with your doctor right away. Most people realize that they have had unprotected sex or been exposed to dirty needles the minute it happens. While there is no cure for HIV or the AIDS virus, the life expectancy of those who have early treatment is much longer than those who delay their treatment.
