I have a few questions. Can hiv early symptoms appear

Customer Question
between 7-10 days after infection...
I have a few questions. Can hiv early symptoms appear between 7-10 days after infection? Do these symptoms all hit at once or slowly add on. And do they disappear all at once. I had extreme fatigue and a white tongue and a few bumps inside my cheeks a week after unprotected sex including oral. Than 2 weeks later I had a small swollen lump node under my chin. The fatigue went away after a week as well as not feeling well. But still have bumps inside my throats which are now wide white bumps and just regular bumps in the back of my throat now. How long do Ars symptoms usually last and start to occur, I've heard 1 week or after weeks but everyone seems to have their own opinion. I got a blood test 22 days after the unprotected sex and am still waiting on results. My doctor said I had an upper respiratory infection and ik that might resemble to hiv.

Hello, I am Dr. Pennington. I think you doctor is right that upper respiratory symptoms are more likely. You have done the right thing by getting an HIV test. That is the only way to know for sure. Do you know if the other person was HIV positive?

Sure, will be careful. Try not to have unprotected sex and try to have sex with safe people. You have done the right thing by being tested. Good luck!

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
