If a person has had an unprotected sexual encounter about 3 yrs ago, how long after does that person need to be concerned about the possibility of contracting hiv or aids?
Not sure what you mean. I have had blood tests done for other things recently but not for std's.
After unsafe sex if person is infected with HIV blood test become positive usually after 3 to 6 months.
If test are negative you should not be worried.
Rarely period can be longer.
If after three years your tests are negative you should not be worried.
I hope this helped.
I was never actually tested for it but wouldn't I notice changes with my health if I had it?
Yes you would have but you should do blood test if you have doubts
Blood test for HIV will confirm everything.
Sometime symptoms come late.
What kinds of changes?
Common symptoms are of common cold or flu viruses, fever, fatigue, and, often, rash, fever, fatigue, and, often, rash
Symptoms are non specific like anyother illness or STD.
CHRONIC diarrhea is also common symptom.
Hives are not specific for HIV,
