Signs and Symptoms of HIV

Good evening po, ano po ang mga sintomas ng HIV? Magkano po ang pagpapatest? thank you

POZZIEPINOY’S RESPONSE

Hi there.

Thank you for your email. Thank you for finding and reading the blog.

Now to answer your questions, first, HIV has non specific symptoms. Initially after the unprotected sex or other means of transmission, there will be flu like symptoms which will last for a week, after which there no symptoms will be observed by anyone. This period of no symptoms may last from 5 years to 10 years depending on how the immune system of the body reacts to the virus or how aggressive the strain of the virus is in replicating.

False Positive

hi good day..

I got tested (screened) for HIV last Oct 29,2014 and it turned out na nag  
react ako sa screening test...my last exposure to unprotected sex was mga  
1st or 2nd quarter last year (2013). Inadvice ako nila na to take the ELISA  
and Western Blot test ( which was sent to San Lazaro)... a month after  
(December 5,2014) bumalik ako sa clinic para makuha ang result.. tapos  
nakita ko sa ELISA and WESTERN BLOT TEST ko is BOTH NONREACTIVE..Lubos po  
ang aking pasasalamat sa DIOS at nag NEGATIVE ang dalawa kong exam. Mai  
marami parin po akong tanong sa sarili ko, sana po ma tulungan nyo po ako  
sa NONREACTIVE na result.
