HIV Positive or NOT

May 4, 2006

I have had unprotected sex with many women and wonder if there are any early signs of hiv that I should look out for. I know that I should get tested, but would like to know if there is anything right now that I should be aware of? Please reply as soon as possible with any answers.

Response from Dr. Horwath

First, you need to stop having unprotected sex. Second, you should get an HIV test.

After the initial HIV infection, the average time to develop any symptoms or illness is 10 years.

herpes and others
I am bipolar, with panic disorder; Should I get tested for HIV?
