Response from Dr. Frascino


Generally speaking, acute retroviral syndrome (ARS) symptoms appear two-three weeks after viral transmission and persist for an additionally two-three weeks. However, there is considerable variability in the type and severity of the symptoms experienced from person to person.

If you placed yourself at risk for HIV, you'll need an HIV test at the three-month mark, whether you have absolutely no symptoms or every symptom in the proverbial book.

Thanks for your donation ( In return, the requested Dr. Bob-certified good-luck karma has been signed, sealed and sent! I suggest you start practicing your WOO-HOOs, OK?
