How common is it to get a fever after you get infected? Would it normally be a high fever? Another website I was on stated that fever was predominantly present during the conversion phase where you show symptoms?

Carl, 70 to 90 percent of people who have symptoms of seroconversion have fever as their primay symptom, fever is commom this time of the year so it would be a mistake to assume its hiv related. also the fever is 101 degrees, normally with seroconversion. hope this helps and symptoms dont mean anything without a test. love and peace

yes that is correct 2-4 weeks after infection one would have flu like symptoms which include fever. If you have been at risk you need to test because not all have symptoms but symptoms are as common as 50-90%

It's not a rule that you'll have any symptoms. Most people don't get any symptoms at all. It's far more likely that you have another bug that's raising your temperature. By all means, get tested, but don't ever try to diagnose a recent HIV infection by symptoms.

that's bullshit too , most people DO HAVE SYMPTOMS the experts say 50-90% of people who get infected have symptoms and fever is most common.

geez- i guess if symptoms are normal for people to get after infection, then does that mean i am having symptons on a daily basis????????????????????????? i have had mouth sores on a constant basis, yeast infections, fevers, night sweats, tired, and the list goes on and on.......... does that mean every time i get a fever, i am being re-infected or am i just converting STILL?
love you eric

well, i am glad i brought a smile to your face :) that is fully what i was trying to do! you'd think that when people ask questions, that they would want an answer. you give an answer and they come back with their "expert" opinion. i don't know, but you'd think if they knew the answer already they would not be here yanking people's chains that have to live with this f***ing disease on a daily basis.
apparently people think that symptoms equal hiv and not the flu or a common cold!
love you all,
daisey
