Hello… Welcome Back to Early Signs Zone. Today our video about: Early Symptoms of HIV
in Men. Before we begin You can consider to subscribe
so You won’t miss the next great videos from us. Symptoms of HIV can vary between individuals
however the first signs of infection generally appear within the first 1-2 months. Many, but not all, people will experience
severe flu-like symptoms which is your body’s natural response to the virus. This is called the ‘seroconversion’ period. It’s during this time that it’s crucial
to identify if HIV is the cause, as your viral load is very high which greatly increases
the risk of passing it on. And the only way to know for sure is by getting
tested. When it comes to HIV infection, it’s important
to know what early symptoms to look for. Early detection of the infection can help
ensure that you receive prompt treatment to control the virus and to possibly slow the
progression into AIDS. Symptoms associated with the flu may be the
first to arise as early signs of HIV. Early signs of HIV include: Symptom 1: Fever The fever, usually one of the first symptoms
of HIV, is often accompanied by other mild symptoms, such as fatigue, swollen lymph glands,
and a sore throat. At this point the virus is moving into the
blood stream and starting to replicate in large numbers. As that happens, your immune system induces
an inflammatory reaction. Symptom 2: Fatigue and Headache The inflammatory response generated by your
besieged immune system can cause you to feel tired and lethargic. Sometimes it can make you feel winded while
walking or generally feel out of breath. Fatigue can be both an early and later symptom
of HIV. Symptom 3: Swollen lymph nodes, achy muscles
and joint pain Lymph nodes are part of your body’s immune
system and protect your blood by getting rid of bacteria and viruses. They tend to get inflamed when there’s an
infection. Many of them are located in your armpit, groin
and neck which can result in aches and pains in these areas. Symptom 4: Skin rash Skin rashes can occur early or late in the
course of HIV seroconversion. In some cases the rash can appear similar
to boils with itchy, pink breakouts. Symptom 5: Nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea Many people experience digestive system problems
as a symptom of the early stages of HIV. However, nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea can
also appear in later stages of infection, usually as the result of an opportunistic
infection. It is important to stay hydrated. Diarrhoea that is unremitting and not responding
to usual therapy might be an indication of HIV. Symptom 6: Sore throat and dry cough A severe, dry cough that can last for weeks
to months without seeming to resolve (even with antibiotics and inhalers) is a typical
symptom in very ill HIV patients. Symptom 7: Night sweats Many people will get night sweats during the
early stages of HIV. These can be even more common later in infection
and aren’t related to exercise or the temperature of the room. With such a vast array of symptoms, HIV testing
is vital to ensure a proper diagnosis. If you think you’ve been exposed to HIV,
or have an active sex life with casual sex partners, regardless of whether you are showing
symptoms of HIV or not, it’s important to get tested as soon as possible. Do signs differ for men and women? HIV is different in women and men. According to the Office on Women’s Health,
some health issues, including sexually transmitted infections and vaginal yeast infections, are
more common and more serious in women who have HIV. After the early stage After the early stage of HIV, the virus moves
into a stage called the clinical latency stage. This can also be referred to as chronic HIV
infection. The virus is still active during this stage,
but it reproduces at much lower rates in the body. During the clinical latency stage of HIV,
a person may not have any symptoms. Some people who are not taking any medicine
to treat their infection may remain in this phase for 10 or more years. However, other people may progress past the
latency stage more quickly. A person who receives treatment for HIV can
improve their chances of remaining in the clinical latency stage for several decades. The treatment is known as antiretroviral therapy,
or ART. It helps keep the virus in check.

    Unbelievable I am just so happy that am no longer HIV positive after using Dr. Kanayo herbal mixture to cure myself. I contacted the virus from my Ex boyfriend two years ago. After he told me he was HIV positive I want for a test that was when I found out I have got HIV from him tho… The unbelievable happened to me last month I met this guy from a HIV guidance and counseling center he introduced me to Dr. Kanayo herb that cured him from HIV after using it for just two weeks. I thought to myself and contacted the Dr. whatsapp number he gave me +1(909)-375-5642 he told me about his herbal medicine and how it works that I only have to use it for 2 weeks. But I have doubts at first because it sounds too good to be truth I just heard a voice in my head after praying that night advising me to purchase his medicine. I paid him the price and gave him my address, three days later there was a delivery man knocking on my door I was happy when he told me it was from Dr. Kanayo. To cut the long story short I used it just as he instructed before going for a new test this time my result was showing Negative twice my doctor was so amaze because the virus was no where to be found, I just broke down in tears and started thanking God and Dr. Kanayo for curing me and ever since I had promised him I will keep sharing my testimony with the public because everyone deserves a chance to be cured. I never really like taking the ARV drugs I am sooo glad I don't have to take it anymore tho lol🎉🎉🎉🎉

    The only way to know is to get tested!

    As of 2018, a 4th Generation HIV 1 & 2 duo/combo Antibody test (has a 95% accuracy in 30 days after possible exposure and 99.7% accurate after 90 days) along with a HIV 1 RNA QL TMA (99.7% accuracy after 30 days). Both test will be a blood draw taken to a laboratory for processing (not a rapid test).

    The 4th generation HIV 1 & 2 Antibody test is far better than the previous HIV 3rd generation test, which required retesting at 90 days. The 4th generation duo HIV 1 & 2 Antibody test along with an HIV 1 RNA QL TMA (early detection test) will be given to be conclusive that you are HIV negative.

    The HIV 1 RNA looks for the actual HIV DNA in your system and has pretty much replaced the Western Blot.

    Both HIV vaccines SAV001H & HVTN 702 have both advanced to Phase III trails! I wonder if those vaccines can be combined?
