Early ARS Is Definitely Out Of Question
      #36596 - 07/02/02 12:55 PM

Just a brief note. In my recent post I half-jokingly mentioned having "symptoms" 1-3 days after the possible exposure.

I have inquired from the most reliable sources (health advisers) at some of the best clinics here that no such symptoms are possible.

If you are getting something that soon, it has nothing to do with HIV. (ARS surfaces 2 weeks after the exposure, or later.)

As to other sexually transmitted nasties, it will take at least one week for them to reveal themselves.

I have noticed that after more or less any relationship I feel somewhat sick. Either I get sleepy, or weak, or flu-like sensations, or... (goes on ad infinitum). An irrational feeling of guilt is a frequent companion. Has anyone experienced the same?

Perhaps it's because most of these are definitely "wrong" relationships.

In each case I hope everyone is doing well, and I wish u good luck. Take care!

i think it is wrong for them to tell you it MUST be that it would happen 2 weeks or later. if you pressed the subject, they would most likely eat their own words and admit that anything can vary depending on the person.

funny, i get sleepy after some good sex too ;)

Strangely enough, all experts agree on the subject. They say that the viral load is too low to cause any effect on one's body in the first few days (even weeks) after the infection. People just don't get ARS straight away. Judith Feinberg agrees on this subject as well, you can find some of her not-so-recent answers.

I too had weird feelings lately. After 1-2 days following had loss of appetite and slight headaches.

But I do believe (experts) it takes anywhere > 7-10 for incubation to occur. One or two days (like what i felt) is way to early.
