Understanding and Identifying HIV
HIV infection happens in three stages. Without treatment, it will deteriorate after some time and inevitably overpower your insusceptible framework. Most people don't know right away when they've been infected with HIV, but a short time later, they may have symptoms. This is the point at which your body's safe framework sets up a battle, commonly inside 2 to a month and a half after you've gotten the infection. It's called acute retroviral syndrome or primary HIV infection. The symptoms are similar to those of other viral illnesses, and they're often compared to the flu. They typically last a week or two and then completely go away. They include Headache, Diarrhea, Nausea and vomiting, Fatigue, Aching muscles, Sore throat, swollen lymph nodes, A red rash that doesn't itch, usually on your torso, Fever. Specialists would now be able to keep HIV from grabbing hold in your body on the off chance that they demonstration rapidly. People who may have been infected -- for example, had unprotected sex with someone who is HIV-positive -- can take anti-HIV drugs to protect themselves. This is called PEP. But you must start the process within 72 hours of when you were exposed, and the medicines can have unpleasant side effects. The seven stages of the HIV life cycle are: 1) binding, 2) fusion, 3) reverse transcription, 4) integration, 5) replication, 6) assembly, and 7) budding.
