  • Can you not know if you have hiv for more than 10 to 15 years?

    Im wondering if someone can not know if they are infected for more than 10 or 20 years? Some people also say they got fever after sex?

    Hi simon,

    It is possible as the seroconversion can be asymptomatic or very mild such that patients with acute infection ignores them. There are also patients known as elite controllers whose immune system suppresses the infection effectively leading to an asymptomatic infection.

    Fever is very common and hence not specific for HIV infection.

    Regards
