QUESTION: I’ve been having careless, unprotected sex simula nang ma-basted ako ng matagal ko nang nililigawan. I’ve gotten STDs because of these sexual acts, and I’m worried there might be something more. What are the chances I might actually have HIV?

ANSWER:

Your chances of contracting HIV (and STDs of any sort) go up every time you:

a. Rub genitals with a non-constant partner/person who sleeps with somebody else/or a group of other people.

b. Aren’t wearing condoms (like Okamoto condoms or any reputable brand brought from your trusty drug store) or haven’t had vaccines (i.e. HPV shots for HPV/Human Papilloma Virus/Genital warts) in the event of said genital rubbing.

c. Exchange bodily fluids (needles, blood, fluids entering from cuts or sores)

But it all still figures like lotto—your chances might be high or low, but you either have it or you don’t.

Here’s what we’ve gathered from DOH’s National Center for Disease Control public data, and talks with doctors thus far on early symptoms of HIV (within one or two months of getting infected)…


1)   FEVER

The first stage of an HIV infection, also called ARS (acute retroviral syndrome), will have you experiencing lagnat. Sometimes mistaken for a regular flu, gastrointestinal or other viral infection, or even hepatitis. Average burning up will be at 38.8ºC. Doctors advice getting blood work to get a closer look.


2)   BEKE-LIKE NECK BUMPS

Lymph nodes are under-the-skin pockets that assist your immune system in fending off diseases. When there’s an infection, it gets inflamed/namamaga. The most visible of your lymph nodes is found on your neck, so expect beke-like inflammation in this area, along with bumps in your more hidden lymph nodes: your kili-kili/armpit and singit/groin regions.

3)   FATIGUE/TIREDNESS

Because HIV is a virus that attacks your immune system, you’re sluggish, winded, and easily out of breath—not just on the onset. Fatigue is both an early sign and continuing symptom of HIV.


4)   SORE THROAT

Inflammation inside the glands of your mouth and neck will also occur in reaction to the virus, which explains sore throat.


5)  
DIARRHEA/NAUSEA

It varies, but according to a study by the World Health Organization about 30 to 60 percent of people in the early stages of HIV suffer from LBM and pagduduwal, as your body is trying to fend off an infection.


6)   SKIN RASH

Itchy, pink to light red areas that look like tigdas will appear all over your body, reported cases have mostly been on the belly and arms. You will scratch it. It will redden more.


7)   NIGHT SWEATS

Similarly, 50 percent of people in the early stages of contracting HIV get into extreme pagpapawis or hot flashes in the evening.


8)   ULCERS IN THE MOUTH OR GENITALS

Basically, white-red blotches of sugat around 2-8mm in diameter that may or may not leave scars in your mouth or manoy.


9)   WEIGHT LOSS

A weakened immune system, panghihina, and a lack of appetite for food, will also eventually result in losing body weight.
