regarding the body effects from HIV
Aug 15, 2005

how long does it take for the HIV (AIDS) to show on a human body... and I mean like the minimum time.

Response from Dr. Conway

If you use the most sensitive molecular tests to detect the virus itself, this can give a positive result within a matter of a day, perhaps less, after a person has been infected. If you use the standard test to measure antibodies to HIV, it is only positive a number of weeks later, typically 4-6 weeks.
