Acute infection by HIV It is a distressing and painful topic for people who have experienced the fear of contracting HIV. I read a story in the On Line Universe that deals with it, superficially, and although I'm not a doctor or a healthcare professional, I'm not an idiot and I learn while I live and live intensely and madly! See:

I went to bed the 23: 45, I woke up at 2: 38 in the morning.

Sleep has left me, I think he does not like me very much, and to make matters worse, sleeping has always been a problem. A problem that was born when I was still a teenager, and one winter night I decided to lie down on the bars of the Copam underground, because I could not explain, there was hot air.

But…. Someone woke me up with a kick to the abdomen hearing a stupid, meaningless scream

vai work bum!

And that was actually what I wanted most. A job….

I know that a lot of people lose sleep because of this problem, the primary HIV infection and the window period and, honestly, I hope to calm those who live like that.

Once infected with HIV, the virus takes care of your body multiplying rapidly. Your immune system responds by producing antibodies in response to the virus.

This period is known as seroconversion. Antibodies appear within one to two weeks and will continue to increase in the months after infection. Seroconversion occurs within three weeks in most infected individuals.

Seroconversion is often, but not always, accompanied by a flu-like illness. This happens in at least half of the people infected with HIV, but it can happen in 80-90% of all infections. Symptoms usually appear within a month of infection and tend to disappear within two to three weeks.

“These symptoms are not a reliable way to identify seroconversion, diagnose HIV infection or rule it out. You need to get tested for HIV. ”
