what is the average or normal span between time of infection and when someone needs to begin meds. I understand everyone is different but what is the average?

You're right, there's a huge variability in the time between infection and starting medications. With current guidelines that suggest starting treatment with CD4s between 200 and 350, this time is around 7-8 years.
