|period between HIV infection & Symptoms
Mar 3, 2004
I would like to know how long it takes for a person infected with HIV takes to really get down with AIDS assuming no medication is applied.
| Response from Dr. Horwath
The average time between the initial infection with HIV and the development of AIDS (in the absence of treatment) is ten years. It's important to remember that this is an average. Some people develop illness sooner, and some people go on much longer without a sign of illness.
