Can you get hiv symptoms in the first 3 months?


It is possible to get the symptoms of hiv in the first 3 months of having unprotected sex. Ive had the flu, my legs ache terrible last 2 days. ( happened 3 months ago) I had swolen glands in my throat 2 weeks ago (which I do suffer from quite alot) Feeling very sick last 2 days also. This happened to me last month. The sickly feeling. I am so worried. Can these symptoms really occur in the first 3 months.

There are no outward, easily visible symptoms specific to HIV. The only way to know if you have HIV is through a test (blood or otherwise) which specifically tests for HIV.

There have been reports of severe flu-like symptoms shortly after seroconversion (that is, contracting HIV) but those symptoms can not be relied upon for a diagnosis. Chances are, if you have those flu-like symptoms you describe, you have the flu.

Yes, go to your doctor immediately.....

I think (though I could be wrong) that the REAL question you're asking is whether or not you have HIV. Of course, you're very worried. But please, please, please get an HIV test. This will answer your question and then some. The best defense and/or treatment is knowledge.
