The set of symptoms of HIV infection in each case can be different, they can appear already in 2-4 weeks after infection, and sometimes after several years. Therefore, it is so important for you and your sexual partner to be tested for HIV before starting a sexual relationship. The earlier the HIV is found in a woman, the earlier it is possible to prescribe a treatment and prevent the development of AIDS and not infect another person (then he will not say thank you).
