For all those bad girls
and especially those bad guys
who are fund of skin diving into
the va.gina that isaka raw
intercourse even those who use
condoms cases of leakages from
broken condoms do often occur
so Here are some of the signs
and symptoms that may come
with HIV infection Avery
interesting article make sure you
grab your popcorn:
1. Fever:
If you have practiced
unprotected se.x, watch out for
fevers as a symptom of HIV. Early
after being infected by HIV, you
may experience flu like
symptoms. This can include a low
grade fever that does not
respond to medication. You may
experience night sweats as a
response to the fever. The fever
is an inflammatory reaction to
the virus entering your blood
2. Sore Throat
Sore throat may be an early
indicator of HIV infection. This
may be an early symptom as the
body reacts to the viral infection.
It can also occur later in the
disease as the infected
individuals immune system
becomes compromised. Sore
throat may be caused by thrush
in the mouth or esophagus, and
ulcers. Chronic throat problems
should be checked out by your
family doctor.
3. Body Pain:
Sore muscles and joint pain are
common symptoms of HIV
infection that occur in the early
flu like phase. This can be caused
by the swollen lymph nodes, or
from rheumatic illnesses.
Rheumatic disease affects the
muscles and joints of the body,
causing inflammation. This
disease can lead to arthritis,
fibromyalgia, and vasculitis. Some
HIV medications can also cause
these symptoms.
4. Cough:
A dry, persistent cough can be a
long term symptom of HIV
infection. This symptom is not
typically cured with medications
like antibiotics and cough
suppressants. Coughing may be
an early symptom as the body
reacts to the new virus. It is also
a long term symptom caused by
the damaged immune system.
The cough may develop into
pneumonia, which can be a
serious symptom with
dangerous effects.
5. Swollen Lymph Nodes:
Swollen lymph nodes may be a
starting sign of HIV infection.
67% of HIV sufferers may
experience some sort of lymph
node swelling. This commonly
occurs in the neck, under arms,
and groin region.
Lymph nodes are distributed all
throughout the body so any
abnormal swelling could be a
symptom. Lymph nodes swell as
the immune system is activated
and the body fights off infection.
6. Headaches:
One of the first symptoms of the
flu related symptoms of HIV is an
unrelenting headache. The
headaches may develop into
chronic debilitating migraines.
Migraines become chronic after
affecting a person for 15 or
more days per month. 50% of
people infected with HIV will
experience headaches as a
symptom, while 27% will
experience chronic migraines.
This is compared to the general
population, where only 2% of
people suffer from chronic
7. Weight Loss:
Weight loss in HIV infected
individuals is common through
the progression of the disease.
When first infected, the flu like
symptoms can cause nausea,
diarrhea, and vomiting. This can
cause a temporary loss in weight.
As the illness progresses, weight
loss can be caused by a condition
called "AIDS wasting". The U.S.
Department of Health and Human
Services categorize a person as
having AIDS wasting when they
have lost 10% or more of their
body weight, and have
experienced related weight loss
symptoms for a period greater
than 30 days.

8. Yeast Infection:
As HIV develops, the infected
persons immune system
becomes compromised. One of
the starting symptoms of a
failing immune system is bodily
infections. Yeast infections are
very common, and they affect
more than just women. The
cause of this infection is a
fungus called Candida. It can
affect the body in different ways,
such as vaginal yeast infections,
thrush, intestinal infections, and
more. Getting rid of these
infections may prove futile until
HIV medication is in place.
9. Fatigue:
Fatigue associated with HIV may
be the most under-reported
symptom. Many people suffer
from chronic fatigue but do not
realize it is a medical condition.
Chronic fatigue is tiredness that
cannot be alleviated with rest.
Fatigue is first reported in the flu
like symptoms that accompany
the early stages of HIV. Once this
phase is complete, fatigue may
not appear until AIDS develops.
10. Skin Rash:
Skin rash is one of the most
common symptoms of HIV. Called
the "HIV rash", this symptom can
be seen in approximately 85% of
cases. The rash may develop into
blisters at the warm moist areas
of the body, including genitals
and facial regions.
Most rashes develop on the trunk
of the body. The appearance of
the rash is red bumps that may
itch and peel.
11. Night Sweats:
As the HIV infection develops in
the body, flu like symptoms can
appear. One of the most
annoying and notable symptoms
is night sweats. The sufferer may
go to bed at a good temperature,
but through the night may
experience widely ranging body
temperatures, going from very
cold to very hot quite quickly. The
physical response of the body is
to pour sweat to regulate the
temperature. The person may
wake up soaking wet and have
to change their sheets and
12. Cold Sores:
Cold sores can be a symptom of
HIV. Cold sores are caused by the
Herpes Simplex virus. It can occur
as genital, rectal, or oral herpes.
Anyone can be infected with
herpes, regardless of their HIV
status. Those who are infected
with HIV and have cold sores
may suffer from recurrent
outbreaks of the herpes virus.
13. None:
The most dangerous symptom of
HIV is having none at all. Many of
those infected do not know they
are. This can be particularly
dangerous as the person may
continue to have unprotected
se.x, potentially spreading the
disease. In 2001, it is estimated
that less than 1% of the
population has been tested for
HIV. In South Africa, it is
estimated that over 5 million
people are infected. If you think
you are at risk for HIV, get tested
right away.
