what to expect
Aug 11, 2003

I know it is impossible for you to give me an exact answer, but I would like to know about how long a person can live with hiv before getting sick. I am 24 and in good shape, I started to eat good and I work out for 7 years. thank you.

It depends on many things. Without ARV medications, the average is about 7-10 years. With ARV medications, you may never get sick.
