Signs and Symptoms of HIV

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


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.

My stress began 1st week of september 2014. I went to the famous "spakol" spots. Anyway that day after the thera gave me a massage it was time for the ES. She gave me oral and i gave her oral sex also. I did. Ot have a condom so i we did not perform penetrative sex. I returned a week later but I think she had her period.  We used a condom. Then condom did not break but the sight of blood was a bit graphic.


Hi pozzie, do you know the contact number of ARG RITM Alabang? they don't seem to respond to my messages. I'm about to ask them for my cd4 schedule. I'm from the province and it's kinda inconvenient for me to walk-in just for scheduling... Pls help. Thanks a lot.
