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?

That is common, but to be able to ID this as conversion can also be ID'd with a flu... Test!

About 1/3rd of guys who get HIV get sero-conversion symptoms - just like bad flu-type symptoms. My seroconversion illness started beginning of December and just kept going and going... I've still got a touch of it now, two days after testing positive. I had a high fever, sore throad and a rash over my face and chest, and lymph nodes in my groin and neck came up, just like you'd get with a bad case of the flu. But after I'd had it more than a couple of weeks I knew, and tested. If you haven't been tested I'd urge you to go and know - early diagnosis is related to better outcomes. Peace, Matt.
