what are the symptoms?
Feb 23, 2001

I'm in my teens and recent I had Unprotected sexual intercourse with a girl of similar age that apparently sleeps with allot of people. I recently have had extreme cases of instant tiredness and some muscle pain and headaches. Are these symptoms of HIV and how long does it take for symtoms to show after contracting HIV? I am generally in great health and dont get sick very often. I'm really worried. please answere back.

Response from Dr. Bartlett

Your symptoms could be due to many different causes; I would strongly suggest getting HIV tested and learning more about safer sex.
