|How long does it take?

How long does it usually take HIV to turn into AIDS? I have been HIV+ since 2001 and still not on meds. How long will my good health last? PS I am a female.

Many years can pass before HIV develops into AIDS. However, in the meantime you should be seeing an experienced HIV doctor for regular check-ups to follow your HIV infection with examinations, including viral load and T-cell tests. The course of infection needs to be monitored so that you start treatment if you need to.
